Today's column asked readers if they recalled making special mailboxes for valentines out of shoe boxes.
Here's a note from one woman who does.
“We would take construction paper, ribbon, doilies, and wrap the boxes. We got those packages of valentines cards and gave the more romantic ones to the boys.The most important thing was to be sure and give one to everyone in the class. It wouldn't be nice to leave anyone out.
“And then you would run home and spread them out on your bed, hoping you got a really cool one from the cute kid.”
