Which of the following is correct?

"Influence is something that is happening in each of our lives practically everyday."

"Influence is something that is happening in each of our lives practically every day."

I see the first usage of "everyday" almost every day, but is it correct? Should I edit it out?

The latter I'd say
'everyday' is an adjective
That's what I thought, but it is so common I was starting to waver, especially after doing a search for the topic on this site and finding several cases of "everyday" as in my first example.

Hello

Yeah, Maverick is right.

I often confuse them, but [everyday] is an adjective and [every day] is [adjective + noun].

When you speak them, you speak as [éveryday] and [évery dáy].

[Almost every day] can be analyzed as [[almost every)] day].

Hi Paco

I just look at 'every day' as at an adverb, like at 'constantly'; this way it's easy to defferentiate. What do you think about that?
Maverick

Yes you are right. [Every day] is an advervial use of a noun phrase. Grammarians call this kind of noun usage as 'adverbial accusatives of nouns'. It's a usage common among Germanic languages.
