Let’s Get in Touch This Write to a Friend Month

December is Write to a Friend Month.

It’s likely that receiving a handwritten letter or card is a distant memory for many of us.  Well, Write to a Friend Month encourages us to change that!  As the name suggests, this month is about connecting with our friends with a heartfelt, handwritten message.  While we can always participate by sending a friend or family member a letter containing a quick life update, we can also get more creative this December.  Here are some suggestion that we can utilize so as to honor Write to a Friend Month.

  • Send Fan Mail

For those of us who have an author, athlete, or other public figures that we look up to, maybe we might consider sending them a handwritten letter explaining why they are so important to us.  Not only is this a fun way to connect with one of our heroes, but we may even get lucky and get an autograph or some other goodie in return!

Another great way to celebrate Write to a Friend Month is by writing a welcoming note to a new neighbor.  Moving to a new place can be intimidating, and it can be tricky to get to know people. Writing a heartfelt letter and welcoming our new neighbors with some thoughtful treats is a great way to celebrate this month while also making some new friends.

  • Write to Yourself

Finally, we can participate in Write to a Friend Month by writing letters to our future selves.  To begin, we could document what’s currently going on in our lives.  Next, we should consider discussing our future goals and any challengesthat we are dealing with.  Once we finish the letter, we could share it with a loved one and ask them to hold onto it for us.  Ideally, perhaps the letter could be held for one year and then mailed back to us to read what our experiences have been as presented by ourselves.  As we read through, we can reflect onwhat we were going to at the time we wrote the letter and determine if we met the goals that we set for ourselves.  This is a fun way to look back and see how far we’ve come.
