I am the one who’s “into rituals." We went there yesterday to visit library and a friend in his first year history PhD. He told us stories about wearing black gowns to attend dinners, parties, or meetings. I believe people will act differently when they are put into a group following these daily small rituals every time. But, of course, more unbreakable rituals a society has, more stable the social statuses are. Best example is what they have in Japan, or, like something here in Oxford.
