C as “anniversary year“. Anniversary is a celebration 25 - 50 - and 100 - summer birthday or activity of the person. So it developed historically. But presently any “round“, i.e. coming to an end on “5“ or on “0“, date is called anniversary. Since 5 - summer birthday of the child the whole such years celebrate as anniversary. In what the reason of allocation of “special“ dates? Probably, in love of all people to holidays.

special, closely connected with natural and kosmicheskimy by forces. Even still before it became clear that Earth has the round form, pagans read the sun bringing them heat and light. The most different rituals were devoted to this round star - lit and skatyvat wooden wheels or hoops from mountains; girls spun round wreaths, and the belt having the circle form was considered as a charm at many people. Against evil forces people carried out around themselves a magic circle. Even the round dance accepted not only at Slavs, has ritual value.
