The U.S. Post Offices handled 850 million pieces of mail on this busiest mail day of the year. Here in Bowling Green. That number translates to 579,000 letters and 10,800 packages.

The "super bowl" for mailing is traditionally the Monday before the week of Christmas, but if you haven't shipped items out yet there's still time, especially if you have the zip-plus-four on the parcel. To get the plus-four, simply log onto www.usps.com.

It's also important to black out any old addresses and bar codes that could confuse postal sorters. Saturday, December 20th, the Post Office on East Eleventh will have extended hours from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m., and the processing facility on Scottsville Road will be open from noon until 5 p.m.
