Also asked, how long does it take for standard mail to be delivered?

The USPS does not give a set time for how long standard mail (bulk mail) should be delivered as they process the mail as quickly as they can but first class mail always takes precedent. Standard mail can take anywhere from 1 to 27 days to be delivered sometimes even longer, but typically we see 3-15 days.

Do people still send Christmas cards?

There's still time! Christmas cards, holiday cards, and end-0f-year messages are perfectly valid at any point in December, and if you miss that deadline—a happy new year message is equally interesting. Plus, with the advent of plenty of ways to send cards online, it's actually just really, really easy.
