Today is World Grammar Day - Please Don't Correct Me?

Mar 04, 2020

Do you know what day it are? Your shore to be surprised when you figure it out, though u may be sad when you saw it. its not bad grammar day, its just Grammar Day!

Grammar Day was established to promote awareness and understanding of proper grammar, and perhaps just another chance to smack those people who can’t seem to compose a decent sentence right upside the head for being daft. The importance of Grammar cannot be understated, especially on Grammar Day!
History of Grammar Day
Martha Brockenbrough had had enough. She had seen the word abused and abased and simply wouldn’t stand for another instance of the poor innocent language being treated poorly in her presence. Not on her watch! So it was that Martha decided that all good verbs, adverbs, nouns, and adjectives deserved a day when people stood up for their rights and refused to allow them to be abused. 
“An English professor wrote the words: ‘A woman without her man is nothing’ on the chalkboard and asked his students to punctuate it correctly. All of the males in the class wrote: ‘A woman, without her man, is nothing.’ All the females in the class wrote: ‘A woman: without her, man is nothing.’ Punctuation is powerful.” You can definitely say that again!
Celebrating Grammar Day
Straight forward and simple, all you have to do to celebrate Grammar Day is take a little extra effort in making your sentences grammatically correct. Those you’re communicating with will appreciate it,
