Rituals are a mainstay of traditional cultures.
Many revolve around religious ceremonies and coming-of-age celebrations.
What marks them as so unique is that they reoccur at the same special place and time and always hold meaning and deep value for the celebrants.
The United States has few rituals anymore. Yes we have Holy Communion and sweet sixteen parties. And for some, the grinding of coffee beans and filling of he automatic drip is a morning ritual they cannot do without. Perhaps it’s not quite as automatic as getting up for work, but over time what’s special about making the first cup can become a little routine.
It’s fair to say that it is a lack of rituals with meaning that makes many Americans feel as if their lives are devoid of something… special.
