Love Note Day is celebrated every year on September 26. This is a great occasion to show a little tenderness. The modern world is rather stingy with the manifestation of emotions, therefore it is wonderful that dates appear on the calendar that call for being more human, and not being afraid to show feelings.
The oldest record of love was written 5 years ago in an ancient Indian text called the Bhagavata Purana. Princess Rukmini wrote a love confession and addressed it to King Krishna. Ancient Egypt and Rome also practiced the art of love writing. Until the 18th century, the skills of writing love letters were even taught. Love messages never lost their relevance; they were especially appreciated during periods of wars. Only the format changed: in the 21st century, with the advent of the Internet, letters ceased to be written by hand, but they have not lost their sensuality.
- In the past, paper was very expensive, so envelopes were not used, the message was folded and sealed with wax.
- The total number of messages delivered during World War II exceeded 2 billion.
- The longest message was written on scotch tape and is 3,200 feet long. It was written by a woman in 1952 to her loved one who served in Korea.
- Writing a love letter makes the person who writes it happy.
How to take part
If you have a loved one in your life, write them tender, sensual letters. Come up with an unusual format, such as a sonnet. If you don’t like to write, find a beautiful postcard on the Internet, but be sure to come up with a caption of at least a few words. A postcard can be replaced with a playlist of love songs for your loved one.
