Today is the 1st Friday in November. That means it’s Fountain Pen Day!
From the Fountain Pen Day Website:
Taking place on the first Friday in November each year, Fountain Pen Day is celebrated by enthusiasts worldwide as a time to embrace, promote, and share the use of fountain pens.
I’ve had a busy, busy day. I had planned on wearing my Fountain Pen Day T-shirt all day and writing a lot of thank you notes with my favorite pens, inks, and paper. That’s a great way to celebrate! Instead, I spent the day at the hospital, praying with a dear lady on the day of her passing. As a pastor, I find it a great privilege that families invite me into these moments.
Now that the day is nearly over, I will finally slip into my Fountain Pen Day T-shirt, ink a couple of pens with new inks, browse the big fountain pen day sales for a bit, and enjoy some quiet time with my family.
That’s worth celebrating everyday.
Happy Fountain Pen Day!
