That’s right, September 24th is National Punctuation Day. This may be a good excuse for me to brush up on my writing skills because no doubt as you read this you will find a number of errors. Looking at their website, I gather this day was really meant to be geared toward younger children in the school system. Good for you Jeff and Norma (Punctuation Day founders)! But talk about random. It makes me wonder what all the other National Day things there are. Did you know that on September 19th was National Talk Like a Pirate Day? Imagine going into a work meeting while your boss says things like, “Arrg, shiver me timbers” or “Ahoy matey”. Actually, come to think of it (and a little off the subject), a couple of years ago a co-worker and I planned a pirate themed birthday party for my former boss and it was AWESOME! Hmm, that could be my next post. In the meantime, Happy National Punctuation Day.
*after writing this I googled National Days to see what I could come up with. This site has a list of what are supposed to be official national days (though I see no Punctuation or Pirate Days on there). But for fun I checked out my birthday and it is National Beheading Day. HAHA! And now I wonder what National Day theme falls on your birthday??
