Blue collection boxes that have final collection times before noon will not be affected by these changes, but collection boxes scheduled after noon may be collected earlier. Due to that, USPS is encouraging mail to be deposited to these mailboxes by noon on Dec. 24 and Dec. 31.

Post offices will be closed on Dec. 25 and Jan. 1. Only Priority Mail Express will be delivered on those days.
