Intro: Sending homemade New Years cards counts as a special privilege for those of us who love to create art. If you're late at sending them out, you can take heart if you've been asking yourself, "Does the mail run on New Year's Eve or on New Years Day?" There is some mail delivery, which allows you to pick up and receive any cards and gifts that may still be coming in.

Does the Mail Run on New Year's Eve? Mailing Your New Year's Cards in 2013

That seems to be the big question, and the short answer to that, according to the USPS site is "yes." The lobby hours will be shorter on those days, so if you want to mail off one of your homemade cards, you'll have to get in the door early or mail the card on a day before the holiday.

The blue boxes you see around town will also be affected by these holiday mail delivery hours. Get to the box near you by noon of the 31st to ensure that your homemade cards are picked up.

However, getting mail on New Year's day is another story. All post offices will hang the "closed" sign on the door, so unless you send your New Year's cards Priority Mail Express, mail on the first day of the new year is a no go, so mail early. Regular service resumes on the 2nd of Jan.
