Monday marked what the United States Postal Service considers the busiest mailing day of the year.
The lines at the post office on New Bridge street in Jacksonville lived up to the title of the day. While the lines kept moving, there was a bit of a wait and a slightly longer line than what's typical of a Monday.
The postmaster says in the 30-plus years he's been with the post office, this was a heavy traffic year for them, even with customers doing some postage work online.
Postal officials say if you get your packages in the mail by Wednesday- they should arrive in time for Christmas.
