MORRISTOWN, NJ — January 23 is National Handwriting Day. Why January 23 you ask? 

According to Macculloch Hall Historical Museum, the day is held on this date because it is John Hancock's birthday. Hancock was the founding father who signed the Declaration of Independence with his memorably large signature, said museum officials.

The museum is asking community members to celebrate the day by writing a letter to someone you haven't seen or spoken to in a while.
