Not trying to add any pressure here but the clock is ticking.  You have to get those gifts and goodies in the mail by certain dates or you are going to miss Christmas with the loved ones that don’t live nearby.


Christmas is on a Sunday this year so there are some overnight limitations you should remember if you are a last-minute Louie.  Here are the big dates you need to know if you are going to take the most cost-effective route and use ground shipping.
