NATIONAL PACKAGE PROTECTION DAY – Wednesday after Thanksgiving

NATIONAL PACKAGE PROTECTION DAY – Wednesday after Thanksgiving
(Last Updated On: January 4, 2023)


National Package Protection Day encourages homeowners to stay alert during these high delivery times. The Wednesday after Thanksgiving is a time to remind us to protect our homes against package theft, which becomes more and more prevalent during the holidays. 

The internet has made it easier to find deals and have packages shipped straight to our homes. But this has also made it easier for thieves to snatch our deliveries right from our doorsteps. Cyber Monday, in particular, is a big online shopping day where most purchases are shipped directly to the buyer’s home.

With the advent of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, there became a need for a day that raises awareness of package theft and helps homeowners protect themselves against thieves. And just like that, Package Protection Day was born.

HOW TO OBSERVE #PackageProtectionDay

Spread the word throughout your neighborhood about protecting packages and deliveries. Help your community be alert during the holidays. Whether you are home or away, protect your packages and more.  

And share your PackageProtection stories and tips using #PackageProtectionDay and #alwayshome on social media.

NATIONAL PACKAGE PROTECTION DAY HISTORY founded National Package Protection Day in 2016 to alert citizens to protect their valuable purchases, especially during the high-traffic holiday season.  

The Registrar at National Day Calendar proclaimed the awareness day to be observed the Wednesday after Thanksgiving annually.
