The 4th of July is Independence Day. A national holiday. And most people do not have to work. Since this year it falls on a Saturday, when most people do not have to work anyway, they officially made the celebration Friday the 3rd. This gave people who already would have it off because it was Saturday another day off. I was not surprised that I did not get any mail yesterday. It was, after all, the official celebratory day for Independence Day, even though it was not Independence Day. Today actually is Independence Day. The mail ran.
