To mail or not to mail...

Traditionally, the holiday season is a time to send greetings in the form of cards and letters to our family members and friends. But with the proliferation of technology, particularly e-cards and email, snail mail is down. “Our volume for 2010 is projected to be approximately 167 billion pieces, a decline of approximately 10 billion pieces from last year’s total,” says Joseph Corbett, chief financial officer and executive vice president of the United States Postal Service. The state of the economy certainly hasn't helped, with more people spending less money on cards and postage. But what about pen aficionados? Will we readily forego the pen? I, for one, sent cards with handwritten notes in each, albeit fewer than in years past. Please take my poll and let us know your holiday mailing habits.
