First annual vs. second annual

  • April 16, 2011, 2:00pm

Please look up at Jules' post for clarity.

A First event happens first.

A Second event occurs second.

An Annual event is an event that occurs once a year.

An event OCCURRING once a year is not dependent on intention, but on occurrence.

An event can be a first annual event only upon reflection of its occurrence.

A second annual event is the first time an event has occurred two years in a row.

You cannot have a first annual event in the present or the future, unless you are a time traveling time traveler. Your intention to repeat the event does not make it annual as it has not yet OCCURRED for more than one year, regardless of intention.

This is really reeeeallly 10th grade stuff people.
