In our life, there have a lot of dates that we are forced to remember, no matter you like it or not. When you are young, you need to remember
1. Your own birthday 2. Parents birthday x 2 3. Sibling birthday x 2 (if you have 2 siblings)
When you grow up and in relationship, you need to add in
4. your lover’s birthday x 1 5. Valentine day x 1
When you got married, you ought to extend your list to include
6. Wedding anniversary x 1 7. Your parents in law birthday x 2 8. Your children birthday x 2 (if you have 2 kids)
The list has not come to end yet, some forgetful person that can’t remember their own parents’ birthday created Mother’s day and Father’s day for the world to celebrate, these two dates have been commercialized by the public, places like hotel, restaurant, souvenir shop, bakery shop, radio & TV broadcast have big time promotion, no way for you to pretend forgetful.
9. Mother’s day x 2 10. Father’s day x 2
Haha… based on the above, assume that you have 2 siblings, 2 children, parents & parents in law, the total celebration per year is 16 days, meaning that you need to prepare 16 gifts / treats for your beloved. Hmmmm…. That excludes Christmas gift or festive gift, well, well, beside wallet bleeds, your head will crack searching for gift and remembering it.
