Post Office Holidays 2009 in USA?

I want more information on Post Office holidays for the entire year of 2009 in usa. Is Columbus Day a holiday for post office and banking? Is US Post Office Open October 12 or is it closed because of columbus day?
Are post office and bank holidays the same? Meaning if banks are closed then post offices are closed too?

In a word, no. Bank Holidays means banks and post offices are closed.
Today is Columbus Day and Post Office locations because of the federal holiday are closed.

Columbus Day is one of just a few federal holidays closing post offices and other federal institutions annually. Each year, the Federal Government issues a specific annual calender of official holidays. Write this list down - there are only a few dates left for 2009.
