Illusory Advice: It’s your birthday and I’ll cry if I want to

"When a friend has a birthday you wrap their present as neatly as you can, knowing that the paper is going to be ripped off – but somehow this is better than giving the present in an old paper bag. But then, why give a present anyway? Why send a card? The card, the present, and the care that you have taken over them, are symbolic of your regard for the recipient and of your good wishes. It is communicative."
