Holiday mailing madness


MADISON (WKOW) -- The nation's postal workers were put to the test today on what's considered the busiest mailing day of the year.

The United States Postal Service estimates it will handle 960 million cards, letters and packages across the country by the end of today.

That's compared to an average of 700 million.

But there are ways to avoid long lines: you can go online, or try using the automated kiosks open 24-hours a day at many branches.

Officials think Wednesday will be the busiest delivery day of the year.
