MAIL CHRISTMAS PACKAGES
Through past experience, the post
office department expects and always
receives the heaviest mail of the year
between the dates of December 12th
and December 24th. In order to give
the patrons of the office a sugges
tion as to the best time to mail
Christmas cards and packages so that
they will definitely reach their des
tination by Christmas, the following
schedule by states is offered:
Dec. 16 Arizona, California, Con
necticut, District of Columbia, Flor
ida, Maine, Nevada, New Hampshire,
Oregon, Vermont, Washington.
Dec. 17 Delaware, Idaho, Mary
land, Massachusetts, New Jersey,
New Mexico, North Carolina, Rhode
Island, South Carolina, Utah, Vir
ginia. Dec. 19 Alabama, Georgia, Ken
tucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Mon
tana, New York, Pennsylvania, Ten
nessee, Texas, West Virginia.
Dec. 20 Arkansas, Indiana, Mich
igan, Minnesota, North Dakota, Ohio,
Dec. 21 Colorado, Illinois, Iowa,
Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, South
Dec. 22 Packages sent on and
after this date should be sent Spec
One of the reasons Christmas pack
ages should be mailed early is caused
by the manner in which mail is
handled en route. Packages are as
sembied at terminals until a car
load lot has been received, then the
car is forwarded to the receiving ter
minal for that state where it is sort
ed to the various offices. Several
days time may be lost in these ter
minals, so it is necessary to mail
early to insure delivery by Christ
