This national observance stands to commemorate the punctuation marks that we use in our daily lives. Periods, semicolons, question marks, and exclamation points are the main examples of punctuation that we use in our writing. Whether it is in essays, text messages, or office memos, punctuation marks form the basis of our language usage. They help to separate elements of sentences to make understanding them easier, and clarify meanings. If you’d like to celebrate punctuations on this day, what better way to do so than to use it as much as possible! If you’re still a little confused about how they’re meant to be used, this is also the perfect time to learn how to do so!
When Is National Punctuation Day?
National Punctuation Day is celebrated on September 24th of each year.
