Letter Writing Day

Date When Celebrated : Always December 7

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

Does anybody write letters anymore!? Letter writing is almost a lost skill. Most letters and notes nowadays, are on texts, emails and instant messages. Messages are sent much more quickly via smart phones and the internet..

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

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.


Origin of Letter Writing Day:

We did not find the origin, or the creator of this special day. When it came time to document this special day, the creator probably had writer's cramps.
