In my November Newsletter I hope the Christmas letter will come back into style in order for us to hear from family and friends near and far that they are okay through all of the restrictions to keep us safe until the majority of the world population can be vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus.
These letters are like a message in a bottle, they usually declare successes of family or losses throughout the year. I have a few friends who carried on with the tradition, while I had fallen off. In fact, usually my cards arrived long after the holiday season or perhaps not at all. This year I am going to be different. I will begin earlier and walk to the post office outlet so that Adam, the postal employee, can drop the cards in his sorting containers ready for the Canada Post truck driver to pick them up and deliver to the main post office building for sorting and shipping. If you don’t hear from me, know we are well and coping in spirit.
