Handwriting Day is celebrated on January 23rd each year. Why is this date designated to celebrate handwriting? Because John Hancock was born on January 23rd, and he was the first person to sign the Declaration of Independence—that’s also why a “John Hancock” is a term frequently used as a nickname for a signature. Handwriting Day is intended to appreciate handwriting and the gift of handwritten notes.

What many people don’t realize about Handwriting Day is that it’s a relatively new commemorative day. In 1977, the Writing Instrument Manufacturers Association started the tradition. The real intention of the holiday was to encourage people to buy pens, pencils, paper, and other stationery products. While it’s since become a special day for many people around the country, it was initially a well-planned marketing tool for the writing instrument manufacturing industry.
