Ball Point Pen Day
Yes, you read it right, there really is a day celebrating ballpoint pens, and honestly can you imagine life without them.
Did you know they were invented in June of 1943 by the Bíró brothers, László and György, in the US.
Some of the most expensive ballpoint pens are made from carefully designed metal tubes in gold and silver! Not all are disposable, some of them are refillable, just like fountain pens. No matter how you look at it, the ball point pen is an essential part of every day life for most of us these days. I bet you've already used one or will use one later today.
So to celebrate why not write a few lines with your favourite pen, scan or photograph it and send us your thoughts?
