President Trump has proclaimed tomorrow a National Day of Mourning in remembrance of former president George H.W. Bush, who died at 94 on Friday.

The mail will not be delivered.

The United States Postal Service issued the following statement:

President Donald J. Trump has proclaimed Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2018, as a National Day of Mourning in remembrance of former President George H.W. Bush.

Out of respect for the 41st President of the United States and to honor his vast contributions to our country during his lifetime, and consistent with the Presidential Proclamation, the United States Postal Service will suspend regular mail deliveries, retail services and administrative office activity on Dec. 5.

We will provide limited package delivery service on that day to ensure that our network remains fluid and we do not experience any impacts to our package delivery operations that might negatively affect our customers or business partners during the remainder of our busy holiday season. 

My toddler is going to be upset, checking the mail is her favorite thing. It was one of her very first sentences: “Check mail! Check mail!” I get it, or I should say she gets it from me. Such a hopeful time, end of the day, you never know what you’re going to get.
