My PPP (Prel. Proj. Prop.)
QUESTION: I am researching what holidays and holy-days are celebrated across religious and secular traditions/communities during the spring time
WHY: because I want to know how the two map onto one another in terms of underlying values behind the holidays and causes for celebration/commemoration,
SIGNIFICANCE: so that my users will better understand what we are really celebrating when the stores fill up with Valentine’s Day cards, for example, and be able to contrast that with contours of other holidays from alternative worldviews and traditions different from our own.
POTENTIAL PRACTICAL APPLICATION: I hope my readers/users can be become better consumers of the commercial market around holidays and shift or become more confident in what they choose to celebrate and why.
