Now that National Grammar Day has come and gone - all too quickly, I might add - I hope you spent the day as I did, using good grammar at work and enlightening co-workers about the subtle nuances of subject-verb agreement whether or not they were interested. I consider NGD a beacon of hope for a future where everyone is more conscious of how they speak and write, especially for business.
But I view this day in much the same way as I view Valentine's Day: It's not a day, but a 24/7/365 kind of thing. Just as you should treat your significant other with love and respect and chocolate throughout the year, you should employ the principles of National Grammar Day every day, otherwise it's worthless.
I feel almost vindicated that such a day exists because people think I'm crazy for being passionate about proper grammar. My heartfelt thanks go out to SPOGG founder Martha Brockenbrough for creating National Grammar Day and for other grammar warriors such as Grammar Girl, Patricia T. O'Conner and Stewart Kellerman, and Bill Walsh who are devoted to grammar and recognize the beauty of our language.
