(WHNT) — Will the mail run on Good Friday? The short answer: yes.
Mail service from the United States Postal Service (USPS) will run on a perfectly normal schedule on Friday, April 15.
While Good Friday is recognized as a holiday by many businesses and municipalities, it is not recognized as a federal holiday. However, ten states recognize Good Friday as a state holiday, including: Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, and Tennessee.
Good Friday, which always falls on the Friday before Easter, is commemorated by several Christian faiths as the day Jesus Christ was crucified and died. It can also be called “Holy Friday” or “Great Friday.”
