Do you still receive handwritten personal letters or handmade cards?
When was the last time you received them?
If you do, you are really a lucky person!
It’s getting rare to actually receive meaningful letters in the mail. The ones that we usually get are just business letters in plain white envelopes. As for greeting cards, maybe one or two mass-produced ones from some business contacts.

It’s pathetic, huh?
I used to collect beautiful paper and coordinate envelopes to write letters. It’s popular years ago when you exchanged letters with pen pals.
I found them in the newspapers and magazines. So I just selected a few and started writing. And most of them replied!
It’s such a warm feeling to receive handwritten letters from them.
Isn’t it exciting when you open the mailbox and see those wonderful personalized letters?
Sometimes I received thick envelopes with photos inside, while some days received just one or two page letters.
What matters the most is taking the time to get a pen, write something down on paper, then get a stamp and post it.
This becomes quite a tedious procedure these days.
The fastest way nowadays is to send letters, cards, or greeting messages electronically via emails, sms (text messages), Facebook messages, Whatsapp, Wechat, and so on.
Of course, it’s perfectly fine to send letters in digital format. But in my opinion, nothing beats one personalized letter or handmade card in an envelope, even if I receive fifty greetings in text messages.
That’s why some of these letters are still well-kept and hidden somewhere. Perhaps I should check them out again and take a walk down memory lane.
Note: Although I’d lost touch with all the pen pals over the years, I was grateful for the wonderful experience and memory… and still am.
Is sending real letters and envelopes considered old-fashioned or nostalgic, or perhaps just a waste of paper in today’s era? What’s your opinion? Leave a comment below to share!
