ALBANY,  GA (WALB) –  It was the busiest day of the year at Post Offices across the country Monday and the same was true here in Albany.

Last-minute gift senders crowded the Post Office on Meredith Drive today with packages and Christmas cards to mail to loved ones.

Mary Prince and Marilyn Bullington both had handfuls of presents to send to grand kids in Pennsylvania and Florida.

Mary Prince was mailing her Christmas gifts. "Running late as usual. I told people I haven't even finished last year's Christmas shopping yet."

"I tried to be finished by yesterday and got everything wrapped this morning," said Marilyn Bullington. "And I'm on a mission to get finished by this afternoon and get everything in the mail and be done."

 The US Postal Service's busiest Day is traditionally the Monday before Christmas. Some 800 million pieces of mail are expected to be handled today. That's 40% more than average.
