Does anyone know if the mail runs on Fat Tuesday, specifically in Baldwin County, AL. I couldn't find anything on the USPS website about it, but its not very well organized. I'm just hoping my reg shows up tomorrow, but if mail doesn't run, well, I'm gunna be....you know.
And BTW, I've lived in this part of Alabama all my 21 years, and in Baldwin County for 17 of those. I've never paid attention to whether mail runs or not, and apparently my mom hasn't either.
USPS will operate under a normal schedule tomorrow.
It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
50 Gallon Aquarium - Colony of Showa Koi Swords.
90 Gallon Planted Aquarium - Yellow Tiger Endlers, Pair of Bristlenose, Six "oops" Five L15
12x10 Gallon Tanks - Guppies, Apistos, Endlers, Shrimp, Swords, you name it.
Some people may find this useful. Mail will run every normal mail day except for Federal Holidays which are:
New Year's - January 1 (observed Friday if falls on a Saturday, Monday if on a Sunday)
Martin Luther King Day - 3rd Monday of January
President's Day - 3rd Monday of February
Memorial Day - Last Monday in May
Independence Day - July 4th (observed Friday if falls on a Saturday, Monday if on a Sunday)
Labor Day - 1st Monday in September
Columbus Day - 2nd Monday in October
Veteran's Day - November 11th (observed Friday if falls on a Saturday, Monday if on a Sunday)
Thanksgiving - 3rd Thursday in November
Christmas - December 25th (President occasionally gives federal Employees Christmas Eve off, usually depending on how it falls, but this does not affect mail delivery.)
I'm working off of memory, but I believe this list to be correct. States and Counties may have other holidays which they observe in addition to these (such as Fat Tuesday in Mobile and New Orleans, where I suspect that even in Federal offices non-essential services may be allowed to slide on out the door early by sympathetic managers,) but again, they will not affect mail delivery. Only "official" Federal holidays do.
Thanks. VJ Day wouldn't be Federal, though. State maybe?
Yeah its state holiday. We're the only state that still celebrates it. I'm sure there are other state holidays depending where you go. I can't imagine trying to deliver mail on fat Tuesday in New Orleans
I always thought it was a joke more or less. Then when I was volunteering at the Senior Center this summer, my opinion changed.
