March 4th, National Grammar Day, has been celebrated since 2008 when the “holiday” was started by the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar.

March forth, and (my addition) live long and prosper with good grammar.
In honor of National Grammar Day, here’s my favorite linguistic joke (though it applies more to foreign language grammar than the kind of good grammar SPOGG promotes:

The nouns responds, “Sorry, I decline.”
