We didn't celebrate our wedding anniversary this Christmas.

I can't recall right now why we got married so near Christmas and on a Sunday, too. Maybe the priest would not marry us on Christmas Eve and the day before that just happened to fall on a Sunday.

We were young. Perhaps we thought we were special in some way. I have news for me: in 1973 we were just the far side of hippy, and spliff-land was becoming as faded as a used teabag.
