The nation's leading package carriers didn't fare very well this Christmas.

Both FedEx and UPS announced they experienced delays getting some gifts to homes in time for the holidays. The companies blame the bad weather and a sharp increase in online shopping.

UPS didn't make any deliveries on Christmas Day, but their trucks will be back out on the roads today.
