National Grammar Day 2013: Quick, explain the difference between 'affect' and 'effect'

March 4 is National Grammar Day 2013. Don't know how to celebrate? We can help.

Fortunately, the holiday has its own website. The site includes lots of cool resources, including a recipe for a Grammartini -- for those 21 and older, of course.

You can also celebrate National Grammar Day by publicly noting other people's grammatical errors. If you opt for this strategy, proceed at your own risk.

Or, simply use the day to improve your own grammar skills. If you need a starting point, visit Grammarly, an online grammar checker that's billed as "your personal grammar coach."
