uncelebratory

adjective; derivation
something that cannot or is not celebrated apparent meaning: something that is not, cannot, or should not be celebrated. The writer was talking about how 100 stories about college isn't really anything to celebrate about. So he used celebratory and the morpheme 'un-' in order to convey not celebratory.
 
To celebrate the uncelebratory event of telling one-hundred stories, I have composed these charts and graphs for all the critics of the site.
Etymology : derivation 'un-' (not) + 'celebrate' (to observe an event with ceremony or festivity) + '-ary/-ory' (adj/noun)
