Make Your Editor Cry: First-Year Anniversary

Make Your Editor Cry: First-Year Anniversary

In the phrase, “our first year anniversary” or “our one year anniversary” the use of the word “year” is redundant because it creates a tautology.

Just writing either “our first anniversary”—(or “50th anniversary” for that matter)— will suffice.

Incorrect:

We vacationed at Niagara Falls for our first year anniversary.

Correct:

We vacationed at Niagara Falls for our first anniversary.
