Are banks, post offices, UPS and FedEx open on Easter 2024? What to know

USA TODAY

Spring is quickly approaching, which means it's time to begin preparing for holidays like for St. Patrick's Day and Easter.

This year, Easter falls on Sunday, March 31. The holiday is an important one for millions of people around the world who follow the Christian faith, as it celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ and follows a 40-day period known as Lent.

The date the holiday is celebrated changes depending on the year because it is one of several "moveable feasts" in the liturgical year, according to the History Channel. Other examples of "moveable feasts" include Ash Wednesday and Palm Sunday.

While most national grocery store and fast food chains will be open on Easter this year, that might not be the case for banks and post offices. Here's what you need to know.
