Do you usually commemorate your date of diagnosis?

Poll dates: December 21 - 28, 2011

We wondered what families do on this date. Some have reported doing something fun for their child, some are overcome with emotion even years later, some don't do anything. We had similar results over the past several years, as is shown in this chart:
