When I was living at home with my parents I did not care about the mail. There for nowadays when I am living alone, a mail makes me too much happy.
So, today when I came home I found a Christmas card at my door. Right now my computer is playing Christmas carols and writing Christmas cards to family and friends.
Have you ever realized how less cards and mail we are sending instead of email? In my case I prefer to get mail then email, especially for special occurrences such as Christmas and birthday.
