Anniversaries commemorated once a year a special event. The most memorable are the births, celebrations such as birthdays and weddings.
For seniors, and for anyone, all become memorable dates, as they highlight the purpose of DO NOT FORGET, -provoking, to devote our thoughts and emotions to such events on those dates.
Not to forget ... that they are useful for anniversaries, each one of them. Some, happy celebrations; others, painful memories, but all important.
