Action Condition Failed - Send Work Anniversary Email

The data is in the same SharePoint list with their birthday and anniversary in different columns. Once I updated the column specific information I am not sure where the flow is failing. 


The error message is as follows: Unable to process template language expressions for action 'Condition' at line '1' and column '14425': 'The template language function 'formatDateTime' expects its first parameter to be of type string. The provided value is of type 'Null'. Please see for usage details.'.

formatDateTime(items('Apply_to_each')?['ANNIVERSARY'], 'MM-dd')
formatDateTime(utcNow(), 'MM-dd')
For further info - this is the beginning of my flow:
