I don't want to use "vigesimoquinto" is there a way to abbreviate it in Spanish as there is in English?
Thanks!

Veinticinco / 25º
Explanation:
Hi there,

in Spain we don't usually say "vigesimoquinto", but "veinticinco": after 13-14th we say the actual cardinal number instead of the ordinal (economy of speech).

That was for the oral version. In writing you can perfectly write "25º Aniversario". It's perfectly OK.

Hope it helped!
