Remember, this National Grammar Day, that there are people all around you with varying degrees of knowledge of and appreciation for the intricacies of English. Instead of calling people out on March 4th for all the usages they get wrong, how about pointing out all the thing things that people–against all odds–get right? Can you correctly pronounce “rough,” “though,” “through,” and “thought”? Congratulations, you have just navigated the Great Vowel Shift.

I take from this two things: 1) National Grammar Day is a thing that exists, and 2) we could all use a reminder about the importance of approaching grammar with an attitude of kindness.
