The U.S. Postal Service is reminding people to send gifts early to their loved ones. USPS said it expects to deliver more mail and packages to homes between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day than any other shipper. It is anticipating between 850 million and 950 million packages during that time. “The total number of letters, cards, and packages processed and delivered is estimated to be more than 12 billion,” according to USPS.
