hey, the internet is here, and everyone communicates via mail. Has the charm of posting a letter been forgotten. It was a diff feeling when one would send you a greeting card via post. Now its all on the net. DOes anyone still post cards and letters?

I email to my friends when lm online. But, my friends lke to receive emails, as they said, it's convenience and saves postage charges. Especially, my to my friends, living in USA, England, China and Japan. Im from Asia, so sending letters to those countries will costs a lot of money. Now, is economy downturn time, so everyone of us trying our best to save money. But, l still use post to post greeting cards and birthday cards, every year to my family and friends. Well, it makes them feel happy and special. I, too feel that way, whenever l received a greeting card or birthday card from any of them.

well, i don't know if people still post letters and cards. but even today many people,when invite for marriages they make it a point to send cards. otherwise, instead of a letter people find it easy to talk over phone. in my case, i don't write letters but sometimes though expect cards on my birthday etc. and when i get one i cherish it.

I do both. I will email everyone if I need to get news to them fast, but if a friend is in need of something with a more personal tough I will write them and mail it. There is nothing better than opening the mail box and having something that it not a bill or a magazine to open.

Posting letters and cards have significantly reduced due to Internet, in my state the Postal department conducted a competition for school kids to write letters to their friends and encouraged the practice of writing letters. In that one day there was around 5,00,000 letters posted in that one day alone through that competition.

If it'll be like a love letter, it will be more romantic if it's a post letter rather than an e-mail. But for the sake of convenience and less cost, I'd go with e-mails. Especially for those who are living far away from each other. E-mails are most likely instant mails in addition, it is a lot easier to organize compared to a bunch of envelopes scattered around.

I email more then anything anymore. I will often get cards in the mail and I also have my pen pals that I write letters to but I email most of all.
