(Letter to my older and wiser pen pal!)
I get bored with the usual letter fodder when I'm writing my mail so I try to think of silly themes. Most recently I wrote a "National Hat Day" celebration letter. I couldn't really think of anything to write about so I Googled "On this day in history" and "Holidays and Observances" for ideas. There wasn't anything very exciting on the day I was writing but I looked back a few days and discovered National Hat Day!! That sounded like a perfect theme for my letter. I asked my pen pal about her most favorite hat she's ever worn. I was able to tell a few stories about some of my favorites hats, too. I made sure to complete my letter with a few of my best hat illustrations! I even included a paper hat for my friend to wear. (It did lose some of it's panache when I folded it to stick in the envelope, however.) Oh well! Happy Hat Day, everyone!
(Festive paper hat!!)
Let's go postal!!
