Dear Diary Day
Before blogs, diaries existed! Writing diaries has been a hobby of introspective people since the 10th Century. It offers many benefits to both the writer and the reader. Dear Diary Day encourages all ages to write down their thoughts and then enjoy the history and beauty that result!
It’s Dear Diary Day!
These books were thought to have been started by women in the royal Japanese court around the 10th Century AD. They were known as “pillow books” at that time because they were kept under pillows by the women for privacy and safekeeping.
The English word for diaries is “day”, which in Latin means “dies”. They can be used to keep track of events and other details, or share thoughts and feelings about important life events. These records, which have been preserved over the years, have provided historians with valuable insights into how life and culture were for previous generations.
Although the origins of Dear Diary Day are not known, the idea of recognizing an ear that listens and doesn’t judge at any hour of day or night seems fitting. A diary will pay equal attention to all aspects of a life, regardless of whether the person is famous or someone who dreams to be. The diary deals with broken hearts and unacceptable parenting, failure diets, and future dreams without any advice or argument, but somehow it provides solace.
Dear Diary Day hopes that more people will take up a pen to record the events of their days. Secrets are safer when kept private than when they are available to anyone with an agenda and internet access. This is one of the many psychological advantages that keeping a journal has. Proper spelling might also be rediscovered.
Participating in Dear Diary Day can make it a lot of fun! Participating in Dear Diary Day can bring you joy and beauty, whether it’s by sharing your thoughts with others or writing them down. These are some ideas to celebrate the day.
To purchase Dear Diary Day’s beautiful blank book, make a special visit to the office supply, book, stationery, or gift shop. A new journal can be lined, unlined, leather bound, or covered in fabric. It’s a great way to get your love for keeping a diary going again.
After you have purchased your diary, it’s time to start writing. Some people like to write every day. Others prefer to write once a week. Still others enjoy writing when the mood strikes. It is important to just write down your thoughts and feelings.
It can be fascinating to learn about the lives of people from the past. Book clubs might consider extending their book-reading time to include Dear Diary Day. Each participant should be assigned a diarist or author from whom they can choose a passage to read aloud for the group. Then, have a discussion. This may reveal a lot about the author and the person who selected the passage.
Many city and county librarians enjoy making displays about holidays. Dear Diary Day is a great example. Visit your local librarian to find out if they have book recommendations.
