Updated:

 

Rain, sleet, or snow Christmas gift deliveries need to be on their way, to arrive before next Wednesday. 

It's one of the busiest weeks for Joplin's post offices. 

Customers can expect longer wait times to mail out packages, and cards to loved ones in various cities and states. 

One customer said, "I think it's a big deal to get it done before Christmas because it's fun to open those gifts." 

With days left until Christmas - chances are you will have to pay more for those gifts to arrive before Christmas Eve.

But it's not to late. FedEx, UPS, and USPS do offer overnight shipping but it could cost over $100. It's also important to check for disclaimers weather can be a variable no one can account for.

Prices vary involving pick up or delivery here's links that can help.
