There has been a constant stream of gifts coming our way these past few months for Spud.; which given the occasion was not surprising at all. What surprised me though was the sheer amount of greeting cards we received via snail mail all the way from The Netherlands. Yes, paper greeting cards. In an envelope. Postal delivery.With stamps and all.
I’m amazed to discover that the culture of sending cards via snail mail is still alive! According to Silver Bullet, sending of physical cards especially to send wishes in celebration of births are being done all the time. As a matter of fact, this very culture of sending cards is STILL being practiced by many in Holland. It’s just a Dutch tradition.
I never knew, of course. And, I was pleasantly surprised…especially by the sheer number of cards, all handwritten which we have received. Thank you for all the lovely gifts, thoughts and wishes.
