These days the immediacy of email and text messages has made written letters a forgotten art form. But you have to admit, it’s pretty exciting when you get a handwritten letter in the mail. Letters are the oldest form of communication between people living far away from each other. Even in modern times handwritten letters feel a little more intimate and personal than typed communication sent over the internet. Personal handwriting creates a special connection to the person who wrote the letter and the time it takes to mail a letter makes it seem like they put in a little bit of extra effort. It’s impossible not to feel special when someone spends that time on you. Letter Writing Day is a holiday dedicated to sending letters to the people you love. This is a great opportunity to tell them just how much they mean to you.
