September 24th is National Punctuation Day in the United States, which as the website explains is a “celebration of the lowly comma, correctly used quotation marks, and the proper use of periods, semicolons and the ever-mysterious ellipsis.”
2017 marks the 14th year that Punctuation Day has been celebrated – a day which would pay to be celebrated around the world. With auto-correct dominating digital devices, the need for correct spelling and grammar has been buried. Despite the digital age, writing and punctuation skills are extremely valuable – and will certainly come in handy when spell check fails.
