16th Wedding Anniversary

Over the past few years on the 21st of September, I’ve been noting the traditional symbol that accompanies the number of years of our wedding anniversary – Tin for 10, Steel for 11 etc.

Last year – 15 years – was Crystal.

However, there doesn’t appear to be anything for 16 years. It seems from now on it goes up in periods of 5 years – with the 20th being China and the 25th being Silver.

Well, it couldn’t be left entirely at nothing, so I took Maggie out for a meal to Luigi’s tonight to celebrate.

I now hereby designate 16 years together as being the Pizza Anniversary!

I wonder if it will catch on.

Hallmark Cards has a list of 1st through 100th anniversary gifts...100 YEAR ANNIVERSARY? For what, a company? Although I did tell Hubby that he had a 100 year contract...if he wanted to leave me when he was 123 for some sweet young thing, good luck to him. ;)

You're right, nothing traditional after the 15th except in 5 year groups. The "modern" suggestion was "Silver Holloware" ...better known as silver plated.

Know what? I like the Pizza Anniversary gift better!

Congrats and many more happy years to the two of you!

Adila - thank you :)

Hope -I'm surprised there aren't more foodstuffs to celebrate anniversaries. I think "Beans On Toast", for example, would be good students completing their first year at university...

Sometimes, pizza is the best thing! Congratulations on your 16 years, Kim, to you and Maggie. I think 16 years being the Pizza Anniversary is a fantastic idea!

And may you have many many more.

So I'm betting on Beans on Toast for your 17th... This is an awesome idea... too bad my 20th is coming up. Now I feel like I missed out on the best anniversaries. I'm stuck with stupid china... I wonder if we could make it China.

Hi Kim, here's hoping you and Maggie have many, many, MANY more happy things to celebrate.



psst...I'm so glad I can visit this blog again...I'd been getting an odd message about 'this site not being safe'...

Kim Ayres said...

Guyana_Gyal - someone else told me that a wee while ago. It turned out it one if the sites I was linked to on the sidebar had been hacked and compromised. There was never anything wrong with this site. Unfortuantely Google didn't bother to tell me people were getting a warning message...
