We are long distance and met online, so we make note of “Meetmas” as he likes to call it – which is the anniversary of the day he first flew out to meet me. We don’t do anything for it other than reminisce, but it’s nice to remember how far we’ve come.

Yes, we do. Day we met, day we started dating, first day he said I love you, day we got engaged, day we got married…My FI is a romantic sap. I’m probably missing some.

My SO’s birthday and mine are also exactly 2 weeks apart too!  I should look into this Midbirthday thing. 😛

SO isn’t the celebrating type but I am, so I’m still working on him, LOL.

@HonoraryNerd:  We still celebrate the 6 month marks… its been 6.5 years, we still celebrate it- because when we hit 6 months for the 1st time, we thought it was such a big deal.  We celebrate 1/2 birthdays (6 months after your birthday) too.

@HonoraryNerd:  Don’t get married on Midbirthday OR near Christmas – you’ll get one gift for two days for the rest of your life! 😛

@HonoraryNerd:  I don’t remember it either, but he does. He is nuts (but don’t tell anyone).

@ChicFoodist:  @HonoraryNerd:  our birthdays are also 2 weeks apart (2 weeks and 2 days to be exact!) I like this Midbirthday!!

 

We have most relationsip related things condensed into the month of July: first date, dating anniversary, first kiss, first time we said “I love you”, first time we had sex. Next year we’ll also have wedding anniversary as an event of July.  Looking back, I kind of wish we had things spread out a little bit more–to give up more a reason to celebrate other things throughout the course of the year. Our birthdays are both in the month of March, and we got engaged on Christmas Eve, so we’re already celebrating Christmas then. Ah well!

l love to celebrate!! SO celebrates my half-birthday every year- its not a big thing- usually just a nice date night. He cooks me dinner, gets me flowers, gets a birthday card and writes half in front of birthday, and makes half a cake for dessert.  It’s at a time of the year where we don’t have other holidays so its really fun. My fiancé didnt grow up celebrating his birthday (its close to christmas so he got combo presents and never had birthday parties) so I’m lucky he lets me celebrate his birthday a couple hours once a year- he doesn’t want a half-birthday for himself.

Nope. We never even celebrated our dating anniversary (partly because the first year was a bit off-and-on).

Am very excited to have a wedding anniversary now – think this year we might celebrate one week, one month, etc 🙂

Not made up ones so much perhaps, but we celebrate all Canadian and Swedish holidays so it adds up! Like last of April, I need a bonfire or fireworks (DH LOVES this) and we celebrate Midsummer with a big party each year. Then Sweden has a lot of “special” days, like Waffle Day – so that day we always have waffles. We also celebrate name days, each day of the year has at least one name assigned to that day. So we celebrate DH in January and I have a name day coming up in just three weeks. We usually celebrate with a nicer dinner, wine and perhaps a small gift. We also celebrate the day DH proposed and before the wedding we celebrated minus months – so 3 of May, 3 of June, 3 of July… We both love making things more festive, so why not! 🙂

@HonoraryNerd:  Every month on the day we started dating we “celebrate” but don’t do anything big just pizza and a movie or something. Also, we are six months apart so we celebrate the midway point of our birthdays too!! (After his, before mine, since he is older)  Its fun to get to celebrate every three months and our wedding date is the midpoint (ish) from mine to his!!!

Most these are all lovey-dovey and sweet.

We celebrate Shark Week.
