Is there mail on Presidents Day? Do we get mail on Presidents’ Day?
No we don’t. There is no mail on Presidents Day. Today is one of the designated post office closure dates of 2010
“This holiday is designated as “Washington’s Birthday” in section 6103(a) of title 5 of the United States Code, which is the law that specifies holidays for Federal employees. Though other institutions such as state and local governments and private businesses may use other names, it is our policy to always refer to holidays by the names designated in the law.”
The OPM explains February 15 2010 is a Federal Holiday as Washington’s Birthday. But the holiday often gets different names.
Here are your remaining 2010 Post Office Holidays.
Monday, February 15* Washington’s Birthday

For Federal employees, July 5th will be their holiday this year:
“** July 4, 2010 (the legal public holiday for Independence Day), falls on a Sunday. For most Federal employees, Monday, July 5, will be treated as a holiday for pay and leave purposes. (See section 3(a) of Executive order 11582, February 11, 1971.)”
