Your Welcome or You’re Welcome?

your welcome final

 

It’s the holiday season and people are getting together, swapping gifts, and sending “Thank You” notes to one and all. So, how do you respond? Do you reply with “Your Welcome” or “You’re Welcome”?

People often make the mistake of writing Your Welcome when it should be You’re Welcome! Since they both sound the same, it’s easy to make such an error. A good way to remember is to use “you’re” when it’s appropriate to say “you are”.

Let’s take a look at some comparisons:

                            Yоur                                                                              Yоu’rе
Examples:  “Yоur flу іѕ open.”                                   “You’re making things very hard fоr me.”
Examples:  “I lіkе уоur shoes.”                                  “Yоu’rе the lоvе оf mу lіfе”.
Mеаnіng:  “Your” means “bеlоngіng tо уоu”.            “Yоu’rе” іѕ a combination of “уоu аrе”.

Is it a Noun or a Pronoun?
“Your” is a possessive pronoun such as Your Cat, Your House, etc. It is always followed by a noun such as Cat or House.  Since it is possessive by nature, it never has an apostrophe with it.

Here’s two more exаmрlеs of Yоur Welcome vs. Yоu’rе Welcome that will help us understand this better:

Correct usage of ‘You’re’.
“I think your more than qualified for that position”. That’s saying “I think you more than qualified for that position”. The grammar is wrong because it does not make any sense. The sentence should be “I think you’re more than qualified for that position”.

Correct usage of ‘Your’.
You’re hair is the loveliest shade of red”. What you are saying is: “You Are hair is the loveliest shade of red” which is obviously the wrong use of the word. The correct usage should be “Your hair is the loveliest shade of red”. A contraction is never followed by a noun such as Hair.

You’re Welcome!

Do you know what’s celebrated on the first Monday of September?

Labor_dayHey guys,
Did you know that today is Labor Day?
In the United States Labor Day is a holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September and it’s actually a celebration of the American labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economics achievements of workers.
Labor Day was first celebrated on February 21, 1887 in New York City. However, more than 100 years after, there is still some doubt as to who first proposed the holiday for workers.
Some records show that Peter J. McGuire of the Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners and a co-founder of the American Federation of Labor, was first to suggest celebrating Labor Day after witnessing the annual labour festival in Toronto, Canada. However, other believe that Matthew Maguire, a machinist, first proposed the holiday while serving as secretary of the CLU (Central Labor Union) of New York.

The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City, in accordance with the plans of the CLU. In 1884 the first Monday in September was selected as the holiday, as originally proposed, and the CLU urged similar organizations in other cities to follow the example of New York and celebrate a “workingmen’s holiday” on that date. The idea spread with the growth of labor organizations, and in 1885 Labor Day was celebrated in many industrial centers of the country.

The form for the celebration of Labor Day was outlined in the first proposal of the holiday: A street parade to exhibit to the public “the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations”, followed by a festival for the workers and their families. This became the pattern for Labor Day celebrations. Speeches by prominent men and women were introduced later, as more emphasis was placed upon the civil significance of the holiday.

The holiday often marks for many people as a day of rest or as their last chance to go on trips before the summer ends. For students, it is the last chance to organize parties before school starts again. In some neighborhoods, people organize fireworks displays, barbecues and public arts or sports events. The football season starts on or around Labor Day and many teams play their first game of the year during Labor Day weekend.

So enjoy your Labor Day guys.
Cheers,
Liron and the Ginger Team.
