Happy National Punctuation Day!

Posted on Sep 24, 2012 | Comments Off on Happy National Punctuation Day!

Little did you know when you awoke this morning that today, September 24, is the ninth annual National Punctuation Day.

This holiday was founded by Jeff Rubin, a speaker, educator and writer and designer of newsletters. He calls this day “a celebration of the lowly comma, correctly used quotation marks, and other proper uses of periods, semi-colons, and the ever-mysterious ellipsis.”

But how to celebrate? Not only is there a list of suggestions on the official website, but there’s also an Official Meatloaf—to be baked in the shape of your favorite punctuation mark (“A fist-sized period makes one serving”).

However you choose to observe it, I wish a most happy National Punctuation Day to all!
