December 9 – secret

☆  secret 秘密


In western culture, it’s usual to make a wish as you cut your birthday cake. The thing is though, you are supposed to keep your wish a secret. You’re not allowed to tell anyone what you wished for.

Most kids wish for more things, but they’ve already had their birthday presents, so it’s unlikely that wish will come true! And, then if they make a wish for something other than “things”, it’s a secret, so again, it’s unlikely for that wish to come true!

Strange, really. It would be better to tell everyone your wishes and goals, right? If you keep them a secret, who is going to help you achieve those goals and get those wishes?
