A new term...

I was just talking on the phone with my mom and was telling her that there is a concert on 9/11 that I just bought tickets to. She made a strange noise as if it was inappropriate or inadvisable to do something on 9/11 and I said well the world does go on, despite whatever unfortunate events have happened. She then told me that she had heard them talking on the news already about the anniversary of the attack coming up. I then suggested that "anniversary" really brings to mind a celebration of something happy and suggested we develop a new term, "trageversary" to describe the passing of another year of which a tragedy took place on a particular date.  Seriously, we need a new term, don't you think??
