Holiday headlines

Even Santa Claus uses the newsroom site to stay abreast of the Postal Service’s holiday happenings.

The Postal Service has spruced up its online holiday newsroom.

The site features news releases, Link stories, videos, stamp information, fact sheets, mail-by dates and details about the Operation Santa and Letters from Santa programs — all displayed on a snowy landscape.

This year, users can “paint” the background with the click of their mouse. Refreshing the page allows users to apply new strokes to a clean background.

Additionally, users can make it “snow” by clicking a snowflake icon in the upper left hand of the screen.

The newsroom site also has a Christmas countdown clock and links to, where users can track packages, schedule pickups, locate Post Offices, look up ZIP Codes and more.
