[Middle English observen, to conform to, from Old French observer, from Latin observāre, to abide by, watch : ob-, over. See ob- + servāre, to keep, watch.]

observʹingly adverb

Synonyms: observe, keep, celebrate, commemorate, solemnize. These verbs are compared as they mean to give proper heed to or show proper reverence for something, such as a rule, custom, or holiday. Observe stresses respectful adherence, as to law or tradition, often in the form of compliance with prescribed rites: observe the speed limit; observe the Sabbath. Keep contrasts with break and violate; it implies actions such as the discharge of a duty or the fulfillment of a promise: He said he would help, and he kept his word. Celebrate in this comparison emphasizes observance in the form of rejoicing or festivity: We are planning a surprise party to celebrate her birthday. To commemorate is to honor the memory of a past event; solemnize implies dignity and gravity in the celebration of an occasion: "It[July 2, 1776]ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance . . . It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade . . . from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forevermore" (John Adams). See also synonyms at see1.
