Postal workers will be stuffing more cards and letters into mailboxes around the U.S. today than any other day of the year. The United States Postal Service says today is the busiest delivery day of the year for smaller holiday items. Those expecting bigger gifts will likely get them tomorrow, the busiest day for package delivery at the post office.
If you haven't sent your holiday mail, the deadline to get it delivered before Christmas is coming up. The USPS says this coming Saturday is the deadline to send cards, letters and packages to be sure they'll be delivered by Christmas Day. Next Tuesday, December 23rd, is the deadline for sending packages with Priority Mail Express.
