When was the last time you wrote someone a letter, or even gotten one? Not referring to e-mails and printed notices, but the personal, handwritten kind. If you had to think long and hard, maybe it’s time for you to get your pens and paper ready, because today is Letter Writing Day!
I am sure many of us analogue-loving people find something special in getting handwritten letters, cards, and notes. It’s always exciting to find in the mailbox something as personal as a handwritten letter among the piles of bills, ads, and notices. Say what—you haven’t sent or gotten a handwritten letter in years? Well, today is just the perfect time to do something about that!
If you haven’t heard yet, today is Letter Writing Day, which, if you noticed, perfectly coincides with the incoming holiday season! It’s time for you to get in touch with your friends (old or new) and family members (in your hometown or elsewhere) with a personal touch. Blow the dust off your pens and fancy paper and send them a quick handwritten “hello,” a lengthy catch-up, or a cheerful holiday greeting!
