letter writing day!Saturday, December 07, 2013
It kind of seems unrelated but the recent discontinuation of my all time favorite film (FP 3000b) and reading articles about the possibility that 35mm film could disappear in my lifetime got me thinking about other things I enjoy that are possibly fading away or at least aren't as prevalent as they used to be. People don't send mail like they used to. Of course there are a million other ways to stay in touch with everyone so I understand... to an extent. Getting a package or letter in the mail is so much more special than an email in my opinion. It's second only to communicating in person.
Here are a few reasons you should send out a letter today...
(or even better - get in the habit of regularly sending out letters!)
◦ Letters are tangible!
◦ Handwriting is personal. You can tell a lot about a person by their handwriting. How many of your friend's handwritings would you be able to recognize?
◦ You have an excuse to buy awesome stationery sets like this, or this, and definitely this.
◦ Mail makes everyone smile. Isn't it nice to go to your mailbox and find something other than bills?
◦ Writing a letter shows you took the time. Birthday card > wishing someone 'Happy Birthday' on facebook.
I hope you're having an excellent weekend and that you spend at least a little bit of time writing a letter to a friend today!xoxo
*Actually I found a bunch of other dates also claiming to be "letter writing day" but really, any day is a great day to write a letter!
