The Silver Anniversary
All silver anniversaries only happen once in a life time, so everyone will have to make them count. And when a person (he or she), various companies, TV shows, and the newlyweds celebrate their 25th anniversaries, it's a real celebration. Everybody knows that the last 25 years of living and/or being in business were well worth it, even in life. If there was a 25th wedding anniversary coming up in the future and I get invited, I'd go, and if one of the companies (restaurants, stores, or malls, e.g.) were to have a 25th anniversary special, I'd also go. Some silver anniversaries don't go as planned, but some of them do; a real half a century, if anyone will. Everybody also knows that they only get only one silver anniversary; so they're gonna have to make it count. I know that when I turn 25, things will be different from here on, and I'll still be in my twenties (20s). If only everybody were to stay twenty-five forever. But there's only one thing for sure: we'll all be 25 once. And at the end of the day, all silver anniversaries will always be remembered for the rest of our lives. I wonder if there's going to be more silver anniversaries in the near future?
