Monday, December 20, was the busiest day for shipping Christmas packages according to the U.S. Postal Service, and yesterday was the deadline for shipping if you expected the package to arrive by Christmas to most destinations. 

U.S. Postal officials say that if you want a package to arrive in time for Christmas – you need to ship it today, and use Express Mail.  Priority mail is cheaper, but it doesn’t come with the assurance that the package will arrive by Christmas Day.

There will be no mail service this Saturday on Christmas, so packages will need to arrive by December 24th which is Friday.
