“Sort Of” Legal Christmas Holiday Today


     Christmas Eve is not a federal holiday but because Christmas Day falls on a Saturday this year and most government offices are closed on Saturdays, most city, county, state and federal offices will be closed today as well. 

 The Chadron Handibus is not running today.

     Banks are closed tomorrow, but most are open today – although many will close early. Financial markets are closed today 

     The U-S Post Office typically has weekend operations, so post offices around the country are observing the Christmas Day holiday on Christmas Day.

That means they’re open today with regular delivery, but closed with no delivery tomorrow. Some post offices have extended hours for last-minute cards, letters, and packages while others will close early.
