Packages from the US Postal Service might not be on time this holiday season. The post offices in Champaign are backed up.

They received five thousand additional packages today alone.

Workers are putting in extra hours to try to catch up.Eight mail carriers hit the streets delivering mail.

Workers at the post office say they'll be happy when its all over.
"It is a little stressful yes were much happier after christmas and more relaxed," says Linda Kellams.

One reason for the delay --- the location on mattis avenue is processing more packages than before.
