Dear Stefan of the many questions,
So is this progressive? ie: Does this include both corn and white
sugar this year?
You specifically said "white sugar". Does this mean that you are not
excluding brown sugars? or do you really mean something like "table

reexamine things periodically.
And as for the questions about 'celebrating' a fast, Webster's says:

name of the Most High.
2. To honor by solemn rites, by ceremonies of joy and
respect, or by refraining from ordinary business; to
observe duly; to keep; as, to celebrate a birthday.
3. To perform or participate in, as a sacrament or solemn
rite; to solemnize; to perform with appropriate rites; as,
to celebrate a marriage.
We celebrate by demonstrations of joy or solemnity or by appropriate
ceremonies; as, to celebrate the birthday of our Independence.
So by observing, we are celebrating, just not necessarily having
