Tis April 23rd, the accepted anniversary of William Shakespeare’s birth and death. What better way to celebrate than a day devoted to the poet and playwright’s turns of phrase and bawdy puns?
Unless your an old-school English nerd, why should this day matter? Our calendar is full of strange and obscure holidays that turn ordinary Wednesdays into celebrations of Shakespearean insults (find your own at www.pangloss.com/seidel/Shaker/). When you’re feeling a bit uninspired, consider using one of these obscure holidays to help inspire a blog post. Check out a calendar of obscure holidays (try nationaldaycalendar.com), or do a Google search for holidays related to your products and services.
As for today? Tis time that thou readeth up on Shakespearean English at talklikeshakespeare.org/!
