The US Postal Service has published it’s 2008 Holiday Shipping Calendar for military and international mail. Also note that Thursday, Nov. 13th is the deadline for sending holiday packages to troops stationed overseas using Parcel Post to all Air/Army Post Office (APO) or Fleet Post Office (FPO) ZIP Codes. There are also discounts which may be available for shipping to APO addresses using the online "Click and Ship" option.

UPS has a Holiday FAQ page which is loaded with information.
