Celebrate Your Anniversary In Style

A couple of years ago my in-laws had their 50th Wedding Anniversary. By some standards it was a simple affair, just family and friends getting together for an evening of remembering and celebrating a very special marriage and the happiness that came from it.
But when that marriage produced nine children, 20 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, then it became something worth shouting about! I wish you could have seen all the excitement in getting ready for the big event. Anniversary presents were bought, a lovely anniversary cake was ordered and the church was decorated with flowers and all the trimmings for the big party to celebrate 50 years together. The highlight of the evening was the music, with my aunt singing the same song she sang at her sister's wedding reception 50 years before, and all nine children doing a performance of a historical song and skit they had put on when they were kids, for a PTA program their mom had "volunteered" them for. It was so funny! The night was a special one for my mother-in-law who had looked forward to it for years. I'm so glad she has those memories as she is now a widow.
So when anniversary time rolls around, get out and celebrate. Do it up big and party till the cows come home.
