March forth on national grammar day: Two ways to celebrate March 4

See also

The fourth day of March is the only day of the year that is a expressed as an imperative sentence given as a command: March Forth! Created by Deborah Shouse, noted writer, speaker and creativity coach, the unofficial holiday invites individuals to march forth into their lives, take on new experiences, and celebrate their accomplishments.

A similar expression to “march forth” is found the Amplified Bible in Psalm 68:7:

O God, when You went forth before Your people, when You marched through the wilderness—Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!—

In addition, National Grammar Day is also celebrated on March 4. The sixth annual event is sponsored by the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar, worldwide organization that mentions: “On National Grammar Day, we honor our language and its rules, which help us communicate clearly with each other. In turn, clear communication helps us understand each other—a critical component of peaceful relations.”

Mignon Fogarty, of "Grammar Girl's Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing" fame, comments:

"Language is something to celebrate, and March 4 is the perfect day to do it. It's not only a date, it's an imperative: March forth on March 4 to speak well, write well, and help others do the same!"

In a most providential intersection of events, the English Department of Fayetteville State University is having its department meeting on March 4 which is also National Grammar Day.

Whether enjoying an opportunity to move forward and march forth into victory in a variety of areas of our lives or celebrating the merit of good grammar, March 4 is “a doubly lovely day.”
