You Have Mail … Real Mail

The reader results are in regarding my Christmas card column. By a large majority, those who responded expressed dismay at my dismissal of annual holiday greetings. One reader enjoys using the cards as part of her Christmas decorations. Another uses them to share the Gospel message. And most who wrote eschew social media sites like Facebook. Interestingly, all of the responses I received came via email. (Disclaimer, I haven’t checked my mailbox at The Spokesman-Review since November, so there may be a letter or – gulp! – a card, awaiting my attention.) But I have good news for those who decried the premature death of the carefully penned note or thoughtfully chosen card. All is not lost. Recently, my seventh-grader came home from school carrying a sheaf of letters. “I got mail!” he exclaimed/Cindy Hval, SR Front Porch. More here.

Question: When did you last write or receive a letter by mail?
