(Undated) -- If you're sending out a holiday card or package to a loved one this year, plan ahead.
The U-S Postal Service says domestic first class cards and letters should be in the mail by December 20th and priority mail by December 21st.
Minneapolis Postmaster General Gina Hellermann says if you're sending a package, you should also include an address and return address inside the box, in case something happens while the package is in transit.
Hellermann says this year has the fewest possible number of days between Thanksgiving and Christmas, so she the earlier you mail your items, the better.
