Observation vs observance

Filed under: Word wars — mighty red pen @ 8:42 pm

Overheard today on the radio:

“. . . and today is the observation of Veterans Day, which actually took place yesterday.”

Okay, here’s the deal. You go to the bridge for observation of the alien life form rapidly approaching the Enterprise. For the observance of a holiday such as today, you may get a day off.

Or you may spend all day raking the leaves.
