The New Year’s Day 2023 holiday fell on a Sunday this year, and because of that, many businesses and government offices observe Monday, Jan. 2 as the official holiday.
This can include postal delivery, banks, and even the stock market.
Here’s what will be closed — and open — on Jan. 2, 2023:

Post offices will be closed on Monday, which means mail and packages won’t be delivered by the United States Postal Service.
The Federal Reserve is observing New Year’s Day on Jan. 2, which means most banks will be closed.
Banks are not required to close on federal holidays, but many do. Check your local branch before visiting.
Court and government offices
All federal offices will be closed. However, at the state government level, some may still be open.
Courts will likely be closed, too. Check with your local branch before visiting.
As with other major holidays, private retailers may choose to be open or closed, or amend their hours. Check with your destination Monday before visiting.
