Deadline For Sending Holiday Mail is Fast Approaching

Procrastinators beware, the deadline for sending holiday mail is fast approaching.

The Postal Service is reminding customers that now is the time to start sending holiday packages if you want them to arrive before Christmas.

If you're sending mail within the U.S., the Postal Service suggests sending domestic packages using the least expensive option, Parcel Post, by Dec. 15.

For mail sent First-Class or Priority, the last day is Dec. 20.

And for those of you who send those last-minute gifts, you have until December 22 to send Christmas packages by Express Mail.

Officials expect to deliver about 20-billion cards, packages and letters between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

The Postal Service is reminding customers that cards and packages going to members of the military in Iraq and Afghanistan should be sent by Dec. 4 to arrive before Christmas.

Officials say military mail headed to other overseas destinations should be sent by December 11.
