I think we will still get packages, but yes, it will seem odd to us for a while. But it just means more mail (or junk) on Monday.

For some people, especially elderly, the mail though is a connection to the world, they anticipate it. Most don't have a computer and I remember being sent out even as a kid to check for the mail again.
