National Grammar Day is observed in the United States annually on March 4. It was established in 2008 by American author Martha Brockenbrough.

According to Brockenbrough, the main goal of National Grammar Day is to help students with their grammar in a lively and positive way. Language is not something to be afraid of, it is something to be celebrated, and National Grammar Day is the perfect day to do it.

A lot of teachers, editors, journalists and writers celebrate National Grammar Day with blog posts, lessons and lectures dedicated to the subject. The day’s events are designed to demonstrate that grammar studies don’t have to be boring, according to AnydayGuide.

Martha Brockenbrough is also the founder of the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar (SPOGG). Her book “Things That Make Us [Sic]” is dedicated to common grammar mistakes.
