The big western hemisphere's holidays are coming.
During these days my mother has some kind of tendency to react over the top with these silly rituals. Pagan/religious/national holidays with their rituals really show female view of the life (and I am not just talking about my mother). There is some kind of desire to make these days perfect, if the special day fails or goes well, it is more critical than the numerous other days. This is the basic philosophy of romance that women harvest all the time. The valentines day is good example how women can be so easily manipulated commercially and sexually. The basic relationship is based on romantic dream that is kept alive by buying presents and doing something different during these big days. Simple. Petty. Gosh, women are dull.
