National Grammar Day!

Happy National Grammar Day to you! I imagine the best way to celebrate is to use perfect grammar, all day long. Either that, or completely botch all your grammar, giving those around you a deeper appreciation of why we need it. Either way, the choice is yours.

Here are a few suggestions about how else you can celebrate National Grammar Day.

If you’d like to use this as an opportunity to brush up on your grammar, Bud Bradshaw has written The Big Ten of Grammar, an excellent, simple guide to grammar that addresses the most commonly-made grammar mistakes.

Do you have a favorite grammar rule?
