Former President George W. Bush, who passed away on November 30, will be honored in multiple ways. In addition to Bush's funeral at the Washington National Cathedral, President Trump has declared a day of mourning.
However, one detail of that day of mourning has people upset. Bush's funeral will have one far-reaching effect on regular Americans: there won't be any mail.
December 5's national day of mourning was instituted as a way to "remember the vast contributions of former President George H.W. Bush," said a statement from the USPS. In that spirit, there will be no mail on Wednesday and all post office locations will be closed.
However, there's a chance that you'll still get your package. There will be limited delivery.
"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," the statement added.
People are Twitter were incredibly upset by the decision. While they didn't want to dishonor the president, they didn't think their mail should be interrupted.
US financial markets will also be closed on Wednesday to honor Bush. The US Supreme Court also postponed arguments.
