We often see in our Twitter timeline couples saying “Happy xx-th anniversary! ♥” when referring to their berapa bulanan. I often find it weird, though.
Anniversary means “1. the yearly recurrence of the date of a past event” while in this case, they clearly refer to the monthly recurrence of the date of a past event. Thus it is faulty to say “happy 3rd anniversary” on May 17 when the date meant to be commemorated is March 17.
However I am not so sure of the correct term that should be used here. I once read mensiversary to describe this monthly recurrence, but I’m not even sure whether this term exists. When you googled it up, the site that would be on the topmost results list is Urban Dictionary. So perhaps this mensiversary is well…a newly made term?
Not so sure, though. Oh well.
Oh, and anyway, happy fourth mensiversary!
