So what is it you ask? Might as well, I had to, and I’m American for Pete’s sake. So this is it. National Punctuation Day is a day that was created to celebrate TEACHERS! Yes, those unsung heroes that shape young minds.

Anyway, I digress, National Punctuation Day was founded in 2004 by former newspaperman Jeff Rubin to continue “to remind Americans that ‘a comma is not a state of being.’” And, hopefully, underscore the use of proper punctuation.

It has been defined as:

“A celebration of the lowly comma, correctly used quotes, and other proper uses of periods, semicolons, and the ever-mysterious ellipsis.”

I can really get behind this! My eyes are constantly offended by horrible grammar and sloppy punctuation (if any). I guess that’s why I’m a good proofreader. These mistakes actually hurt my eyes! LOL!

So happy National Punctuation Day! May your comma ever be in the right place. http://www.nationalpunctuationday.com/
