“On the other hand, the fact that Angela Vicario dared put on the veil and the orange blossoms without being a virgin would be interpreted afterwards as a profanation of the symbols of purity” (Marquez 24). Rituals contribute to an exaggerated sense of tradition clouding people’s minds. Now in the book, Marquez writes about how Angela Vicario put on the veil with some orange blossoms. According to tradition, it was a ritual for the bride to put on the orange blossoms only if she were a virgin. To put such orange blossoms on the veil if she were not a virgin was considered a sin. Here, it is observed that such rituals associated with marriage have contributed to an additional empath on blind traditions. Does the colour of the flower, or the veil or the dress matter if one is a virgin or not? It would not be so, and yet people follow these rituals from generation to generation and believe that when Angela put on orange blossoms, she did the most profane and impure act possible. Such was the general mentality of the people who had lost their sense of common sense and humanity. It was as if they were led by blind tradition, cultural and religious beliefs and rituals, more than their humanity.
