What are you guys doing on Monday? I know what I am NOT doing. I am not going to the bank, receiving mail or going to work. But why?
A. Am I celebrating a day that belongs to only one veteran?
B. Am I celebrating a day that belongs to more than one veteran?
C. Am I celebrating a day that doesn’t technically “belong” to veterans?
According to a government website, the answer is C. And this is why:
“Veterans Day does not include an apostrophe but does include an ‘s’ at the end of ‘veterans’ because it is not a day that ‘belongs’ to veterans, it is a day for honoring all veterans.”
I like the government’s explanation. I believe the country should honor all its veterans. (I also believe there should be a semicolon between “veterans” and “it is” instead of a comma.)
However, now all I can think about is that apostrophe in Saint Valentine’s Day. Anyone know where I can get a name change form? And how I can become a saint?
