Some life events are celebrations such as birthdays and graduations whereas others are for mourning and remembering. Everyone commemorates these events differently but they are still important milestones in one’s life and therefore important to capture and remember.

How do you celebrate your life events? Share your photographs and contribute in this year’s Photo Hunt.
