Today is  Letter Writing Day.  Take a few minutes, and send someone a hand written letter.

Letter writing is an almost lost skill. Most letters and notes nowadays, are on emails and instant messages. Or, they are typed on an internet keyboard.

When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone, either printed or in cursive? .......I thought so.  

When was the last time you put pen to paper to get in touch with someone? Email, text messaging and instant communication are incredible tools, but lack the personal touch of a handwritten letter. Dust off your writing paper, pens and envelopes and try writing a letter in place of emailing or phoning on Letter Writing Day.

Letter Writing Day History

There is no clear origin of this day. One possibility is that this day evolved from Japan, and the hobby of stamp collecting. Japan has a Letter Writing Week, and a Letter Writing Day. Actually, the Japanese Letter Writing Day is held monthly on the 23rd of each month.

A second possibility is that this day evolved from one of many school related letter writing days. There are many references to Letter Writing Day  as a grade school, high school and college letter writing days. These events are often one time events, and have been held on a myriad of dates.  

Regardless, of how it originated, Letter Writing Day is here. Participate in this unique day, by sending someone a hand written letter today. The recipient will be glad you did.
