DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Presidents Day is here! People will either be headed to work, running errands, traveling, staying at home or simply doing something else.

The Postal Service will not be in operation on the third Monday of February, meaning caller service, mail delivery and Post Office Box service will not be in operation, USPS says in a release.
The post office observes several holidays, where deliveries and services are put on hold for different holidays, which got 2 NEWS thinking about the other holidays left in 2023 that USPS observes that will have an impact on you.
