    It's hard to believe that Christmas is only eight days away.

    As you can imagine, the postal service will be busier than ever with more people shopping online.

    Officials said this week alone, they will process and deliver close to 3 billion pieces of mail, including greeting cards.

    At the processing facility in Hartford, 2 million pieces of mail will be sorted on Monday, alone.

    “My staff at the Hartford plant will be working 24 hours a day from now until Christmas Eve and out in the field today we’ll deliver close to a million packages,” said John Wezenski, the senior plant manager for the Connecticut Valley District.

    The United States Postal Service has several resources on its website, including the last day packages should go out to make sure they arrive by Christmas.
