National Grammar Day

Happy National Grammar Day! Yes, this is really National Grammar Day!

This particular holiday is only 12 years old.  Martha Brockenbrough created National Grammar Day in 2008. She is the founder of the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar.  The English language has over a million words. Our language has some set rules and also has some debatable rules in it as well.  We have a holiday to celebrate this sometimes crazy grammar.

How do we celebrate this holiday?  It is quite easy.  Use proper grammar today! 😉  Or be crazy and purchase a style guide or grammar resource today!

Enjoy your words and Happy National Grammar Day!
