It’s not exactly a national holiday with a day off work, but March 4 marks National Grammar Day. I got the word from Mr. Rewrite, a defender of good grammar, punctuation, and usage. Get the details at the celebratory host site, National Grammar Day.
No doubt the site suggests ways to celebrate. Here are a few I suggest:
- Create a list of your grammar pet peeves and invite others to add to it.
- Practice starting sentences with "She and I" and "He and I." Speak these sentences aloud to others.
- Review the list of grammar sites at National Grammar Day and forward the list to people who would benefit from it.
- Click through a few of my posts on grammar and usage (in the Grammar and Usage category at right). See if you can find something you didn’t know or didn’t remember. If you already know most of what I wrote, smile smugly.
- Use the word grammar in several emails you send out, and spell the word correctly.
- Add to this list by commenting below.
Happy Grammar Day!
