What’s today? December 20, 2011. Four shopping days left til Christmas. Across the nation, Toys R Us opened at 6am this morning and will remain open until 10pm on Christmas Eve, December 24th. That’s 112 hours to do the last minute shopping for your little ones. Just remember, Amazon.com has toys too, and you have until December 22nd to complete your online orders.
The Postal Service expects to deliver 16.5 billion letters, packages and cards between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve. The busiest day for mailing this trove of holiday cheer is expected to be Tuesday, Dec. 20, when 801 million cards and letters will be processed – nearly double the average daily volume.
The busiest day for delivery of packages is a day earlier – Monday, Dec. 19. I say avoid the lines, do your shopping online from home and let Amazon.com, Best Buy, Endless, or Links of London do the shipping for you. Click on the banners and text on the right side of the screen and purchase the remaining items on your Holiday list.
Wishing You and Your Family a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!!
