Monday marks the busiest day of the year for postal service

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - If you spent the weekend getting your holiday cards ready for the mail, you're not alone.

The United States Postal Service, USPS, is expecting today to be its busiest day of the year. Postal officials say they are expecting to process about 830 million pieces of mail.

Officials say that the postal service's overall volume of mail in 2009 will be less than in 2008, but the use of priority mail flat rate boxes has increased.

Today is also the busiest day of the year for Fedex.

Coming up tonight, NewsChannel 11's Tiffany Pelt will tell you about the extended holiday hours, the rules for shipping, and much more.
