Have you shipped your holiday stuff?

Well, you might want to hold off on shipping it Dec. 14. Apparently that’s designated as the busiest day of the year for mailing and shipping holiday packages, letters and cards.

The USPS says 15 and a half billion pieces of mail will be sent worldwide this holiday season.

Postal workers are already delivering packages and mail seven days a week.

To ensure arrival by Christmas, officials recommend sending by December 21 via priority mail.
