(WSPA) – Time is ticking away and there’s just a couple more days for you to ship your gifts, so they’ll arrive to their intended destinations by Christmas.

The US Postal Service said today is the single busiest mailing day of the year.

That means when you stop by the post office on your way to work, or on your lunch break, you probably won’t be alone.

USPS said 12 million people will visit more than 30,000 post offices, nationwide.

7 million people will use their website,

December 20th is the last day to send anything first class mail.

The 21st is the priority mail deadline and the 23rd the last day to ship priority mail express.

If your local post office is normally open on Saturdays, the USPS said it will be on Christmas Eve but likely not past noon.

Deliveries will happen like normal but the USPS said they’re shutting down Christmas Day and the day after.

One last piece of advice from the USPS is to avoid giving your personal information to fake emails telling you about a package in your name or postage charges. The USPS said do not click any links or provide personal information.
