Chopin’s 200th Birthday Year
Let’s just say I’ll write the anime preview post when I get back; IIRC the new season doesn’t start till January 4th (I guess it should be Winter 2011 then, but still; Winter’s not the first season of the year, so I’ll still call it Winter 2010).
One of the things that I didn’t do this year (or rather, didn’t hear of before this year) was the Twelve Days of Christmas tradition started by Canon (CCY), and continually held by many members of the anime, Touhou, and god-only-knows-what-else communities.
I suppose since I only really started watching anime this year (watching 400 episodes each of Naruto/One Piece/Bleach doesn’t count because they sorta suck), there’s nothing much to reflect upon; indeed, this blog is not even one year old yet (according to the blog’s third birthday, which is in February something).
Yet, 2010 was a year of many things – though only three main things come to mind.
The 2010 Shanghai Expo and 2010 Vancouver (woohoo!) Olympics.
The 100th birthday of our school.
And Chopin’s 200th birthday.
Funny how everything revolves around birthdays, huh? Not much of a thing to celebrate, you getting one year closer to your death (or for Chopin, you having have been dead for one more year).
Oh well, I guess there’s nothing more to say, other than the euphemorical ‘Happy Birthday’ – we all know ‘Congratulations on not dying/congratulations on having been killed early’ is what that really means.
