She said the postal service expects to deliver almost 200 million packages leading up to Christmas Eve.

However, online sellers won't get a chance to catch their breath from the Christmas rush before having to deal with higher shipping costs. "We're not saying it wont get there, we're saying that it may not get there".

"The closer to Christmas it gets, the heavier the business is". "It's for New Year's", said David Hamilton, customer.

"Try not to wake them up and try to secure the package", Lopez said. "Still, have your package ready, packaged, taped, addressed and ready to go", said Amber Evans with the U.S. Postal Service.

"We're seeing a large increase in priority mail shipments, in particular", she said.

The Postal Service offers shipping tips in 10 video "how to" guides.

"We know Christmas very well and the customers know that we know Christmas very well.so, it's a tradition", said Ruiz.

United Kingdom shoppers spend more than double on online shopping - £2,175 a head - than any other country in the research, the study found. "A lot of people have items they have purchased sent to us to be picked up". "It's about three times more items than the next busiest day".

"I just think they're going to go like this - chew chew chew (laughs)", said customer Jennie Anes, as she moved the box she was carrying in circular motions to depict a circuitous route. "It seems that retail in general is up this year, which is a good thing for everyone involved".

If you miss this deadline, you'll have to use "Priority Express" to make sure packages make it by Christmas.

Friday, Dec. 22 is the last day for Priority Mail Express.

He and Johnson expects the next few days to be even busier.
