April 26 is World Stationery Day!

Letter writers in the United States have been celebrating National Letter Writing Month (also known as National Card and Letter Writing Month) this month, but a love of analog correspondence and all the things that go with it -- stationery, cards, pens, pencils, stamps, etc. -- does not end on the shores of America. The London Stationery Show, scheduled for April 25-26, 2017, organizes National (UK) Stationery Week (April 24-30) and World Stationery Day (April 26).

According to the World Stationery Day website, the event celebrates the written word, as well as stationery. Its aim is to get people all over the world talking and writing about stationery and why writing by hand is important. And to send more letters and cards, not just text or email.

Using the hashtags #writingmatters and #keepwriting, organizers encourage everyone to share the joy and importance of hand-writing letters, notes, journals, etc.
