Happy Anniversary!

What is it about death anniversaries that makes people want to “celebrate” them? Every August at Graceland Elvis fans flock there on the day of his death. And with the 10th anniversary of Princess Dianna’s death a few days ago, the media went crazy.

Fox News showed some kind of memorial service for Dianna during their morning show. MSNBC actually reran the whole funeral.

And of course, every December 8th John Lennon fans gather in New York and burn candles for some reason.

I don’t get it.  I mean, I guess I do in a way, but why not do all this stuff on their birthday instead? Why highlight the saddest day of their heroes’ life, that is, the day of their death?
