Happy National Punctuation Day!

Posted on Sep 24, 2012 | 0 comments

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!
