sixth anniversary

Six years ago, we were in Maui.  O Maui no ka oi.

Some “facts” about the sixth anniversary, from the un-lovely

“Traditional 6th wedding anniversary gifts have a theme of Candy, Iron and Sugar.” (Jaemon suggested molasses.)

“A contemporary or modern Sixth anniversary gift has a theme of Wood.” (What’s with their capitalization scheme?)

“The flowers associated with the Sixth anniversary are Calla lilies” (No punctuation here.  Calla lilies, genus Zantedeschia, are said to signify beauty.)

“The Gemstone list shows Amethyst and Garnet are the gems associated with this Anniversary” (I guess they ran out of periods.  Anyway, I’m not really into gems.  Interesting to note, however, that the name “amethyst” comes from two greek roots meaning “not” and “to intoxicate”, which is exactly what we will be doing on our sixth anniversary.  I mean, not getting intoxicated.  At least, I speak for me.  Maybe Jaemon has other ideas, come to think of it.  Hmm.  Garnet, on the other hand, comes from the Latin word for grain, which may bring to mind grain alcohol.  I’m not sure where I’m going with this.  I should have stopped at amethyst.)
