Although postcard writing is not as popular these days, yet there are some who are emotionally attached to this form of writing. It is a mode for communicating something important in a very limited space.

Things to keep in mind when writing postcards

  1. Place and date must be written, but it need not have the sender’s complete address.
  2. The salutation, complimentary close, subscription and sender’s name must be written.
  3. Write the address of the addressee in the appropriate space.
  4. Postcards are always informal.
  5. They have a limited writing space. Hence, one must be brief.
  6. The body of the postcard should have the following:
    1. Purpose of writing enquiry, reply, travel and so on
    2. In case of an enquiry—what and why
    3. Travel postcards should have information about the place where the card is sent from weather, people, places, cuisine, etc.
    4. Best memory of that place
    5. Interesting facts that you’ve learned, and which most people are not aware of

16th February 20XXMy dearest Aunt Lucy,
You will not believe that I finally visited the Surajkund fair upon your recommendation. And I was wondering why I didn’t do so earlier. I went with Muzzaffar, a very close friend of mine. The fair was a grand affair with a rich collection of regional and international handicrafts and handlooms. It just went on to show the diversity of our cultural heritage. It was like I was surrounded with a splash of colours everywhere I could see. The cultural performances at the fair held my attention completely. The food court at the fair had cuisines from all over the world.I overate so much that I felt that I won’t be able to walk any further. Muzzaffar and I also tried all the rides, though he was a little reluctant at first.The mela showcased the best of the best and I will go there again next year.

Love,
David
