The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) is recommending mailing Christmas gifts early.
Officials say the week of December 14, 2020 is expected to be the peak this year for busiest time for mailing, shipping, and delivery.
With a very large number of online sales this year, the USPS is expanding Sunday deliveries in high package volume locations. Mail carriers will also be delivering Priority Mail express packages on Christmas Day for an additional fee.
If you are sending First Class Mail, the recommended deadline is to ship by December 18, 2020.
Starting December 19, 2020, it is recommended you use Priority Mail to make sure your packages arrive before Christmas.
