There’s something about receiving a handwritten letter that feels so much more special than a text message or email. Perhaps it’s knowing that the writer put a lot of thought into their words and wrote them out carefully for you to read. Or maybe it’s the rush of receiving something in the mailbox that isn’t a bill.
The old-fashioned practice of letter writing has seen a resurgence in popularity lately as our lives have become increasingly dependent on technology. Still, some argue that the act of writing a letter by hand, slipping it in the mail and then waiting several days for it to reach the recipient takes far too much time and energy.
