I've got some questions about anniversaries. I got married last year and I am quickly approaching my first anniversary. It dawned on me that i didn't have much context for what/where/how people celebrate this personal event. My wife and I are going to go away for the weekend. We'll dine out. I will get her flowers. Those things are somewhat obvious conclusions. We have had a rough financial year so this will be a big thing for us. I'd like to get her a gift too but i'm not sure what yet. I know clothes that she would love but i wonder if that's too functional and not romantic enough. Also, this is supposed to be our "paper" year. So, I thought I'd ask for some feedback from the membership here about how you perceive and perform anniversaries. Hopefully it'll give me some context and some ideas... Do you exchange gifts with your spouse? Do you follow the Emily Post guide for anniversaries (1st being "paper" themed, etc.)? Is this a more important holiday than Christmas? Than Valentine's Day? Do you celebrate it in a specific way other than those previous two or is it yet another reason to lavish attention on your mate? Do you make a big production of your anniversary or keep it intimate? Do you celebrate "more" on magic number years: 1,5,7,10,etc. or is each year as important? Thanks in advance for any feedback.
