The apostrophe that bothers me…
After going thru all the posts in FB on Father’s Day, the stickler in me has a question – why do we write “Father’s Day”. It should be Fathers’ Day – right? (It is wishing all fathers). Just like we write Children’s Day (not Child’s Day) and Presidents’ Day (not President’s Day).
Google it up – it is always Father’s Day and not Fathers’ Day. Does not make sense to me.
Also, in that line, even more confusing is “Veterans Day”. There is no apostrophe at all!
I am not saying this impedes basic communication.
After all, It is not a catastrophe.
But still, it is an apostrophe.
