"Perhaps I will stay with you awhile, or even spend the winter - My love to all of you - " - Paul in his letter to the Corinthians
Are the days of putting pen to paper and handwriting a letter obsolete? Does old fashioned letter writing still exist?

Every Christmas and birthday that I can remember followed a similar pattern: wake up, open presents, spend time with family, and have a nice dinner. There have been variations over the years, of course, but one thing never changed – my mother’s insistence on writing thank you notes. After receiving any sort of present, my mom would immediately compile lists of every gift and who gave them to us. For years, my sister and I would roll our eyes, annoyed.
