"We're just trying to help everyone get the holiday spirit out and get the packages where they need to be," Steve Cunningham, who oversees customer relations for the USPS in Omaha, said. "We want to make sure everyone meets that deadline."
The last day to ship priority for Christmas is Dec. 22, but its not recommended to wait that long.
