How To: Christmas Card Edition




I simply can't be the only one who has trouble in the grammar department. The whole, YOUR vs. YOU'RE, IT'S vs. IT'S, THERE, THEIR, THEY'RE, and is a comma supposed to go there, and what about an apostrophe? I am clueless when it comes all this, and yes I did attend high school English and passed. Better yet, I even passed College English. Still, can't seem to get all of these little grammar goodies straight.

As I was trolling Facebook one night I saw that someone posted a picture of their Christmas card and noticed that there was not an apostrophe at the end of their last name. Which got me thinking, "did they address their own Christmas card wrong?" I started asking my husband how to make our last name plural and what do you know? I have been addressing our Christmas cards wrong every year (face to palm).

So, this year, as I sat down to brainstorm the annual Christmas card design I made sure I put in the correct spelling/plural of our last name.

Since I can't be the only one out there who second guesses themselves in the grammar department I decided to make myself a little chart to help me remember. Hopefully someone can get some use out of it.
