Question for the Admins: How do you decide which posts from the CB to put in the Letterbox? 

Sometimes we select comments that relate to one of the themes in the magazine or are seasonal, but other times it's more random. We like to print a variety of interesting comments or writings.

EEEEE yay, again! I keep forgetting to renew my Cricket subscription, so could someone pleeeeease tell me what my comment said? It doesn't have to be a screenshot or picture, though that'd be cool.

"It is safe to eat the stickers that are on fruit (like apples, for instance). The glue that is used to put them on is actually food grade. There are nine million more women than men in Russia. The loudest word ever shoulted was the word 'quiet.' House flies always hum in the key of F. Cats have thirty-two muscles in each ear. Just like Chinatown in the United States, there is an Englishtown in China. Napoleon and Hitler were born 129 years apart. They came into power 129 years apart. They were defeated 129 years apart.

            Welcome to the CB! Some of my
favorite things are—goodness there’s a lot! I love chocolate, purple, thick
socks, fluffy quilts, knitting, British shows, Earl Grey tea, writing, fantasy,
dreaming, sleeping Star Trek, adventures, the Irish and Scottish countryside,
fairy lights, dragons, epic music, Marvel, books, Hallmark movies, hot
chocolate, quiet rainy days, ukulele, clarinet, bass guitar, wordplay, the
quiet laughter of someone else, drawing, elegance, and so many more! I love
thinking about things that make me happy—it puts me is such a good mood. Thanks

Here you are:

"I'm in Japan for my dad's job, and it's been awesome. The people are so accommodating, and the food and culture are wonderful. My mom even makes Japanese dishes at home! Last summer we made homemade sushi, and it was sooo good. The fish feels delicate and is kind of sweet and savory at the same time."

that's really cool. I love sushi, I had always thought it would be really gross but one day my mom brought it back from the store and it was delicious. Making homeade sushi is really fun, I enjoyed it a lot when I made some
