I don’t have any mail to send because I do it all electronically, but I think i just might mail out my Christmas cards a little early this year.

According to this article, there is one at:

“On Wednesday, the bizarro mailbox at King and Pitt streets in Old Town Alexandria was the subject of much curiosity and just as much confusion.”

If you find any others, let me know so I can start mailing.

All of this is probably to distract people from the price of stamps going up to $0.41 on May 15th.

For more info, don’t goto the post office… just visit here.
