The USPS will be getting its Christmas bonus this year.

One of the downsides of academia is that it's relatively rare to land a faculty position where your family lives, and thus every year come Christmas my SO and I get to wrap up presents for both of our respective families and mail them off. We just finished the mass-mailing today: eight relatively heavy packages sent to eleven groups of people. I'm sure the USPS is happy tonight.

One nice change from prior years was that we were able to pay for and print most of our postage and mailing labels from home via USPS's "Click-n-ship" service (see USPS.com if the link doesn't work). It's quite easy, assuming you have a scale to weigh packages on, and free delivery confirmation is included with some options.
