under an anniversary (lat. annus jubilaeus: Rejoicing year) one understands a Erinnerungsfeier, a birthday or day of death (or a series of celebrations) at expiration about 10, 25, 50 or 100 years.

Also often a Dienstjubiläum ( anniversary of the beginning of work) or a firm anniversary is celebratedas an anniversary of the foundation of a firm.

To 100-jährigen anniversaries one says also Centennium, to the 1000-Jahr-Feier Millennium. Already to the Decennium (ten years) to invite is uncommon.
