About the Holiday

Letter Writing Day is a day to put the pen to paper instead texting, emailing, Facebooking, or tweeting. Often referred to as snail mail, handwritten letters offer a more personal touch. Writing letters used to be the only means of communication. Letter writing has been mentioned as far back as when Homer wrote the Iliad. Many museums showcase letters written from soldiers to their wives or families during war times.

Some websites list letters from famous people. FastCoDesign.com lists _12 Hand-Written Love Letters From Famous People and ThoughtCatalog.com shows 16 Most Beautifully Touching Love Letters From Famous Writers And Artists

A "Dear John" letter is one that is written to break off a relationship which is said to have started during the second World War. John was a generic name for a man during that period.
