UPS always delivers on the 24th. Part of the job.

doesn't the USPS also deliver regular mail on the 24th, and haven't they always? The 24th isn't a holiday in the United States.

Federal Employees have been given the 24th off. Well, most of them. The Post Office has to work that Monday.
I wonder to whom they'll deliver my mail to, because they have a helluva time delivering it to ME!

UPS even delivers for a few hours on Christmas day. I know a guy that does deliveries on xmas since they pay triple time. Gets paid like $80/hr for 2 or 3 hours. If you can work it around your holiday plans it doesn't seem that bad to work a few hours and get a few hundred bucks.

Well, it isn't a holiday so I guess I would expect them to be working. We don't have it off but this year, since I am at a new company, I get to work at home. Woo hoo!

Most everyone was going to be on vacation anyway but I always feel as though I should be around just in case something comes up. I lugged both laptops here so I should have more than enough to do and I can be available to the one person I know of that will be there.

Apparently they're using the 24th as an excuse to not deliver packages on time - they must be assuming everything people ordered only needs to arrive by xmas.

I had a next day air package that should have been here yesterday, it was even scanned 'out for delivery' at 9:20 AM yesterday. But now it is rescheduled for Monday, when I'll be on an airplane over the pacific. Thanks.

Small town (<4,000) here. Our local USPS office has someone come into the office on the 25th. That person will to try to make phone contact with people who had late-night packages delivered in-office that might be expected as gifts.
