National Yearbook Week reminds us how special the yearbook is

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Today is the final day of National Yearbook Week, and we’ve had a blast celebrating our love of yearbooks all week.

Hopefully you’ve had a chance to celebrate the yearbook too, with special activities in your school or even by just flipping through the pages of your old yearbooks and reliving all the memories.

We took a sample of comments from around Twitter, just over the course of the last few days during National Yearbook Week, and posted them below as a reminder of the yearbook’s appeal – to show just how unique, funny and permanent a keepsake they really are.
