Announcing the Premiere of the USPS® 2018 Holiday Blog

The Holidays Are Coming! The Holidays Are Coming!

The most magical time of the year is quickly approaching! We’ve been planning for it all year long and we’re ready to kick off the holiday season a little earlier than usual this year.

With that spirit in mind, we are “holiday-ifying” this blog. For the next 13 weeks this space will feature posts covering things you need to know about the U.S. Postal Service® this holiday season — shipping deadlines, volume projections, tips to avoid shipping glitches, products and services to make your holidays easier, how to ship food and fragile items, ways to protect your packages, how to ship to loved ones abroad, new holiday stamps, special postmarks, Operation Santa and more.

The Holiday Newsroom is also ready for the season. Press releases, facts sheets, videos and other content will be posted regularly on this easy to access site.

The Postal Service is uniquely positioned to deliver the holidays — whether it’s at the doorstep, the neighborhood Post Office or online at This Is Our Season! We’re Delivering the Holidays! We’ve been doing it for more than 240 years — and this will be the best one yet!

Please check back regularly to see what we’re doing to make your holidays less stressful.

Happy Holidays from the U.S. Postal Service!

PS – The elf featured in the image is named Holly. You’ll be seeing more of her this season!
