USPS, UPS and FedEx 2015 Holiday Shipping Deadlines
In case you haven''t been paying attention, Christmas is next week! That means that time is running out for you to get your packages off in the mail! That's right, you're running out of time to get your packages sent for the holidays.
Be sure to get your packages sent out RIGHT NOW if you want them to arrive by Christmas.
On an additional note, here's a friendly reminder that none of the major shipping companies will be delivering packages on Christmas Day.

Much like UPS, FedEx will also be on their normal operating schedule through December 23, with some modified services on December 24. They, too, are closed on Christmas Day. Here is the complete FedEx holiday schedule.
For all of you procrastinators out there who will undoubtedly wait until the last minute with some gifts, it looks like your best options for delivery on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day will be to do it yourself, by hand.
Or I guess you could always try to get in touch with Santa to see if he'd be willing to deliver for you. There didn't seem to be any info online regarding his exact schedule or delivery charges, though...
