T-Shirt of the Day Award for National Punctuation Day!

24 Sep

A semicolon is not a surgical procedure, and an ellipsis is not a celestial event. National Punctuation Day celebrates these facts and many more, honoring everything from the lowly comma to the fanciful ampersand. These punctuation-themed t-shirts celebrate punctuation marks too!

Punctuation helps us make sense of our written language. Most grammar rules are fairly straightforward, but there is one hotly contested debate: the series comma (aka serial comma, Oxford comma, or just plain “the comma before the ‘and’ in a series), use of which is supported by every style manual including the Chicago Manual of Style … except the style manual used by journalists. Vote on this critical issue by choosing which t-shirt supports your choice: serial comma, or no serial comma?

T-Shirt of the Day Award for the Autumnal Equinox

22 Sep

Autumnal Equinox … sounds like something out of Narnia, or maybe Middle Earth, eh? No, it just means the day of the year in fall (hence “autumnal”) when the period of day and night are equal in length.

After the equinox (“equi” = equal, “nox” = night), days become shorter and nights longer until the winter solstice, or the shortest day and longest night of the year, followed by lengthening days until the spring equinox when there is one day and night of equal length, then longer days until summer solstice, the longest day and shortest night of the year. Then the days get shorter, little by little, until autumn equinox comes around again! Many world religions think of these as holy days, while others just use them to mark the calendar. Ancient civilizations built giant calendars that are still working today, such as Stonehenge, to help them mark these important days.
