25 Fun & Obscure Holidays in April

25 fun and obscure holidays in April

In addition to Easter, April is filled with some fun little holidays to celebrate.

April is also known as National Card and Letter Writing month.

An annual effort to promote literacy and celebrate the art of letter writing. The writing, sending and receiving of letters, post cards and greeting cards is a tradition that has preserved our nation’s history and changed lives. Unlike other forms of communications, card and letter writing is timeless, personal and immediately tangible. Postmasters and managers of customer service at post offices across the country are encouraging card and letter writing by hosting friendly competitions among local youth or by supporting activity at local libraries or schools. 

In case you’re interested, there is a pretty cool 30 letters in 30 days campaign going on thanks to Hello Lucky and Egg Press.

And, as an incentive, I’m offering 5 cards for $15 in our Etsy shop until April 30.

And here’s a few more reasons to celebrate during the month of April.
