1. They are always in the middle of some strange ritual.
Tradition is stronger than anything and it has helped us preserve some interesting habits. People say they don’t really believe in this stuff, but keep doing it anyway.
Examples? Pregnant women wear a little red ribbon or a safety pin attached to their underwear whenever there’s a lunar eclipse to defend their unborn child from astronomical maleficence. Women also tend to have an overstock on red and yellow panties that reflect their wishes for true love or money for the New Year (depending on the current necessity). And there are some others who buy an image or figurine of Saint Anthony of Padua, put him on an altar with some candles, and place it upside down until the day the miracle happens and they find true love. Yep, that’s actually extorting a saint!
