Anniversary Year

It seems like every month I'm reading about another anniversary celebration for this year.
  • Mozart: 350th birthday

  • Nikolai Tesla: 150th birthday

  • Dmitri Shostakovich: 100th birthday

  • Janet Gaynor: 100th birthday

  • Rembrandt: 400th birthday

  • San Francisco Earthquake & Fire: 100th anniversary

  • San Francisco Japantown: 100th anniversary

  • Samuel Beckett: 100th birthday

  • John Huston: 100th birthday

  • George Bernard Shaw: 150th birthday

  • Bertolt Brecht: 50th anniversary of his death

Is this really such a big year, or are people just in the mood to commemorate?
