The United States Postal Service (USPS) has announced holiday shipping deadlines that must be followed to ensure Christmas packages reach their destination on time.

USPS recommended sending holiday cards and gifts for Christmas before December 15, Since in this way the packages can be delivered before December 25 to their recipients.

According to the Postal Service, first class mail must be sent by December 17, priority mail before December 18, and express priority mail by December 23 to ensure on-time delivery by Christmas.

According to the USPS, those dates vary for those who live in Hawaii and Alaska, and the service also listed recommended shipping dates for those sending packages overseas or to the military.

On the other hand, children who send gift lists to Santa should receive them in the mail by December 10, no matter where they are sent in the United States.

“The sooner you ship, the better – don’t delay, mail and ship today,” the postal service said.

The USPS says the busiest time of the Christmas shipping season begins two weeks before Christmas, and the week of Dec. 13-18 is expected to be the busiest of the shipping season.

Shipping within a deadline does not guarantee packages will arrive on time, the USPS said, unless otherwise noted.
