Sometimes even Santa needs help getting those special presents to kids (and adults) and that's where the post office steps in.

However, you will want to make sure you have these dates on hand because there are deadlines to ensure your packages get to where they need to go before the BIG day. There is even more pressure to make sure your packages get to the right place because Christmas is on a Sunday this year.

So, FedEx, UPS, Amazon, and other big shipping companies want to make sure those packages get to their destination on time and have released shipping dates for the holiday.
