Writing a thank-you letter

Do you have painful memories of being forced to write endless thank-you cards and letters when you wanted to be playing with your Christmas presents? Do you make your children do the same? Or do you believe that nowadays a phone call, email or even a text message will suffice? All families are different in their expectations and it can be difficult to please everyone.
