Monday, post offices across the country processed nearly six million pieces of mail, making it the busiest day of year.
But, it's nothing the the post offices can't handle especially in Greensboro. That's because they hire additional help to keep the lines moving.
"We hired six more seasonal workers just to gear up for this type of thing," Spokesperson for US Postal Service, Greensboro District.
