National Thank You Note Day

National Thank You Note Day has a main goal: to tell people that words of gratitude often have a magical effect on those around them. People have been using notes and postcards for a long time, filling them with such necessary words. I wish the tradition continued!


Even in ancient Egypt and China, the society was kind to such notes. For this, beautiful papyrus paper was chosen, each line was thought out so that the addressee was guaranteed to smile upon receipt. The period and place of appearance of more modern postcards is still disputed by researchers – perhaps this happened in the Celestial Empire, when Cai Lun invented paper, or in England after the appearance of a serial product called “Penny Penates”.

Today, paper cards are used much less often than before. Electronic prototypes, on the contrary, have gained momentum: they can be shared with relatives not only on National Day! A traditional letter will not be delivered immediately, if you live in different cities, an electronic picture will fly in 1 second. The development of technology is great, but you need to remember where it all began. It would be sad to lose touch with paper products forever!
