Sorry, due to December 31st...

The specific date is not the reason, but the associated holiday New Year's Eve. (Though, this could be different in your part of the world... wherever that may be.)


Your use of "we could not able to" is equivalent to "we were unable to" but the context of the entire sentence indicates to me the phrase isn't required.

Your use of "sent home delivery" is redundant, "home delivery" provides all of the information needed.


You stared the sentence with "Sorry," and should avoid using the same word to start the next clause, or sentence. Adjust the sentence to cut one of them.

"Inconvenience" is the word you want, not "inconveyance" (though it is a fitting word).


Overall, the sentence is verbose and can be made more concise.


Sorry, due to the New Year's Holiday, home delivery was not available. We apologize for any inconvenience.
