September 24 - National Punctuation Day

I know this is posting a bit late in the day but I found this interesting tidbit and wanted to share!

September 24, 2009 is National Punctuation Day!

Haven't we all slipped that apostrophe in the wrong place at one time or another? I know I am guilty and sometimes I look back at a post or comment and think "Yikes - how did I miss that glaring error?"

Lynn Truss, author of best-seller “Eats, Shoots & Leaves” is a self-proclaimed punctuation vigilante. She illustrates the importance of good punctuation between these two sentences:

A woman, without her man, is nothing.
A woman: without her, man is nothing.

There is a National Punctuation Day Website with tips, fun "error" photos and even a baking contest as part of the celebration festivities!

I'm saying thanks to Torie Lynn at Happy Daze Blog where I spotted the original info! She has daily posts with fun facts like this or notable events, including birthdays of famous people. There seems to be something special going on somewhere every day!


  1. I wish I'd known about this earlier. I'd have done some sort of post about it.

  2. Me too Susan! Maybe we'll remember in time next year. =D

  3. J. Kaye - don't we all make simple errors sometimes?! There were some good ones at their home site!


Your comments are always appreciated!
