You say it’s your anniversary

Samantha Lynn declares:

The thing that’s been driving me most berserk lately about the deteriorating educational level of the talking heads is this sudden habit of saying
five-month anniversary” of things. After all, “anniversary”
is from the root “annum”, meaning YEAR… The only thing that bothers
me more is when the same idiots compound their stupidity by saying
“first-year anniversary” of things…

One thought on “You say it’s your anniversary

  1. What about “first annual”? One can’t have an annual event unless there was one the year before.
