BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

If you've got Christmas gifts to send or order, you'd better jump on it because the post office says the clock is ticking.

If you are shipping in the US, you can still get your packages sent overnight to be there by Christmas.

However, if you're shipping abroad, you're out of luck.

During one of the busiest days of the year, the sorting plant in Baton Rouge sent out nearly 60,000 packages, which is almost triple the amount it would do in a normal year.

The postmaster says the number of packages shipped have gone up nearly 10 percent over last year.

Meanwhile, the number of letters and cards sent is actually dropping.
