If you are still planning to send holiday mail and gifts, and you're worried it won't arrive in time for Christmas, there is still a little bit of time left.

Monday was the busiest shipping day of the holiday season. The U.S. Postal Service processed more than 500 million letters, packages, and cards that day. The number of days you have left to ship are dwindling, so here are list of dates you need to know:

The last day to send first class mail is Dec. 20.

The last day to send priority mail is Dec. 21.

The last day to send priority mail express is Dec. 23.

Dates for global express service vary by country, so for international mail it's best to check dates online or at the post office.

Dec. 17 is the last day to send priority mail express for military mail. So if you are planning to mail Christmas cheer to the troops, send it out today.

On Dec. 18, some retailers attract customers who want to buy last minute gifts with free shipping offers. According to freeshippingday.com, over 800 retailers are participating.

Many guarantee that your items will be delivered by Christmas Eve. Their website even allows you to tweet your favorite store and ask them to participate.

Visit the USPSUPS, and Fed Ex websites for more mailing details on mailing deadlines.
