Just wondering.. is there post delivered on Dec 24th in Germany?
Had that discussion with my wife this morning - she believes that the Post DO
deliver on the 24th, I have memories that they rarely have.
Specifically - will DHL still deliver packages that day or is it a full holiday?
DHL is somewhat separate from the Post - at least our way the Post delivers from bicycles are a small yellow van whilst DHL deliver from larger vans with DHL on the side.
The 24th is not an official holiday at all (nor is the 31st, see http://www.schulferien.org
) - its just that most employers give their employees a half day off work. In my case (we have just been taken over) we get both days completely off.
