    Postmark :)

    If you are relying on a post mark, be sure to check what hour the local post office closes on Saturday -- and plan to get there comfortably before that time. I don't think that any post offices are open on Sunday or on New Year's Day, but there may be main offices in the biggest cities that are.

    If all else fails, check the nearest airport. There is usually a 24 hr/ 365 day post office there.
