January 23rd National Handwriting Day

Good handwriting is important, that’s something I really know nothing about. My handwriting is so bad I can;t even read it! But today was created for those that have good and writing and the opportunity to still improve it. It was created by WIMA, the Writing Machine Manufacturers Association back in 1977 and placed on John Hancock’s birthday, you remember him… the guy who signed the Declaration Of Independence with that nearly perfect handwriting! My grandfather got his hand caught in a corn picker as a younger man and had his hand mangled. He still wrote with that hand and had some of the most beautiful handwriting I’ve ever seen. Just goes to show how lazy I am!

How to celebrate – Practice your penmanship. Take handwriting lessons. Take the time to write things people can actually read.
