Is National Punctuation Day Becoming Too Commercial?

Happy National Punctuation Day!

One of my guest writers, Charles Carson from the journal American Speech, sent me a funny message asking if I thought National Punctuation Day is becoming too commercial.

I laughed and posted the message to Twitter and received these amusing responses. You people crack me up! Add your own sentiment in the comments section.

@jmayson Stores have had Punctuation Day decorations up since July 5th. The holiday has lost its true meaning. 🙂

@bpende The real problem was when Father Punctuation started showing up on Coke cans … that was just too much.

@dcperry I think the Great Colon will find my parentheses pstch the most sincere parentheses patch of all.

@worldsofwayne Thought you wrote “Punchuation Day”. That would be a painful day…

@ffluvssg1 Rockin’ around the Comma Tree, have a happy holiday…

@djcitymaus all depends on if there are Hallmark Cards — which would be pretty ironic considering their creative use of punctuation.

@mightymur What? Next you’ll be telling me that I shouldn’t have a National Punctuation Day wish list.
