Where does 💌 - love letter emoji come from?

Is there anything more romantic than a declaration of love in written form? Sadly, love letters have fallen out of favor ….

Critics of texting and social media claim that even the act of writing a friendly letter has become a thing of the past, and that people are not learning to express themselves the way they used to.

Yes, you could write a love letter to someone by email, but chances are good it won’t have the same impact as a handwritten one, lovingly folded and put into an envelope, addressed by the besotted‘s writer’s hand. Finding a real love letter in one’s mailbox is a thing to be savored and remembered. Or … so we’ve heard. Nobody’s writing the dictionary these days.

Who wrote the first love letter, you ask? Chances are good the first declaration of love took its form in a gift of a dead animal or perhaps a cave drawing. That’s more romantic than email, too, we guess.

The love letter emoji though wasn’t first written until it was approved as part ofΒ Unicode 6.0Β in 2010 and added toΒ Emoji 1.0Β in 2015.
