While it may be the year 2021, handwriting is still relevant as ever.
Later this month, we celebrate National Handwriting Day. Celebrated yearly since 1977, this U.S. holiday highlights handwriting's benefit in education, cognitive development, and refining motor skills. Handwriting Day takes place yearly on January 23rd, which is the birthday of America's Founding Father with the most recognizable signature - John Hancock.
In 2018, Handwriting Day was officially endorsed by members of Congress. Unfortunately, most American public school curriculums replaced cursive handwriting with tablets, laptops, and standardized testing. So, it's up to us to promote the perks of putting pen to paper.
Watch the video below to learn 10 ways to celebrate National Handwriting Day. While you're at it, sign up for our Handwriting Day giveaway. The grand prize is a Pelikan M101N Grey Blue fountain pen worth $685 retail. We will randomly pick a winner Monday, January 25th, 2021.
We hope that you celebrate National Handwriting Day and that some of these tips develop into habits that benefit your creativity and mental health. If you'd like to learn more about how to improve your handwriting, check out our video on how to use fountain pens to improve your handwriting and a follow-up video on handwriting styles for your fountain pen.
And, before you shut off all your devices and relax with a pen and paper, we'd love it if you share this post on social media with friends and family to help keep handwriting alive.
