Refracting Rituals

Refracting Rituals

Rituals are often synonymous with religion and being pious. They consist of a series of actions, performed to a prescribed order. Rituals may be solemn or joyful, long-drawn or brief.

However, the word 'ritual' can take another meaning too - rituals are habits which we have grown accustomed to, such as brushing one's teeth before bedtime or wearing one's left shoe before wearing the right.
