Hello G@G community,
Rolling out the red carpet on November 18, Princess Day recognizes every girl deserves some PAGEANTRY in their lives no matter their age. After all, each one is a Princess in someone's eyes.
Perhaps your princess is of the high-stepping variety full of energy, dancing and twirling their way to every adventure.
The occasion may call for an orchestra or a concert of sorts. Other princesses must expel their energies through the pursuit of vigorous debate and rousing laughter.
Some may be more introverted, reserving their thoughts for their ideal company.
Historically, though, princesses are independent minded, joyful and generous of spirit.
Their loyalty knows no bounds.
When a princess senses a celebration about, she is sure to join with join with full enthusiasm. And one in her honor, well, you can be sure Princess Day will be well received. So, roll out the red carpet and bring a smile to the princess in your life.
Show the princess you know the royal treatment on Princess Day.
Princess Day was created by The Swan Princess was released as an animated theatrical film in the United States on November 18, 1994.
From my point of view "princess" stands for two very different metaphors.
In the first metaphor , the princess is lovely, poised, talented, plucky young woman who is swept off her feet by a dashing, good, rich, charming, powerful young man.
Moreover, this young man is a Knight who according to the code of chivalry serves his lady love.
Perhaps every (heterosexual) girl wants to be treated like a princess in that sense, and why not? She is supposed to be the ideal woman, at least in fairy tales, corresponding to the ideal man. She wants to be treated like a princess because she wants to be that sort of "princess," and have that sort of "prince." It's aspirational.
It's understandable and even delightful to want to be treated like a princess because they want to live a virtuous life and they hope for a man who will share in "the fairy tale" of that sort of life.
In the second more cynical metaphor the princess fancies she is like the princess of the first metaphor, and deserving of royal treatment but in fact she is selfish, mean, and undeserving.
She has impossibly high standards which she doesn't herself meet. She wants to be treated like a genuine princess and expects her handsome prince to live up to her fantasy, but she is merely vain and selfish and really has no aspirations to behaving like a princess in any substantive way.
So of course there is a problem. In the 21st century most young women are VERY FAR from being princesses, and most young men are very far from being princes.
Still, on the one hand, there are plenty of wonderful young women who are generally good people, and they naturally want to be treated with respect by a man who " DESERVE HER" but of course if she has any sense she knows that life isn't a fairy tale.
Everybody's flawed , and she really should deserve the man she wants, just as much as he deserves her. A girl who says she wants the fairy tale and her handsome prince is, one hopes, like this. One shouldn't fault this; it's indeed charming.
On the other hand, there are all too many vain, lazy, dishonest, or otherwise not particularly good young women but they have been subtly induced by society's prevailing influences to regard themselves as better than men very few of whom are princes in any sense, as I said.
The behavior of some young women, far from all of course, would indicate that they think they can and should hold out for a guy who measures up to a "prince" standard regardless of how unregal her own behavior is.
At bottom, the difference is HUMILITY a virtue so sadly lacking in most people today.
But when a woman is CRITICIZED for wanting to be treated like a princess, we mean she is actually the EXACT OPPOSITE of those things. She lacks humility and the winning graces.
She is haughty, intolerant, mean, and cynical. she expects others to serve her, agree with her, and carry out her wishes; she can't be bothered with dirty work, etc.
So I'd say to the girls that if anyone ever says you're acting like a princess you should be sure to get them to clarify which kind they mean.
It might be a compliment, and then again, it might not."
I'd also like to say to the girls if you say you want to be treated like a princess, I'd just ask whether you have all the graces that, in the fairy tales, made the princess actually worthy of royal treatment. If not, you might, set your standards lower.

Well, every little girl likes to feel like a princess, at least by her own dad.
Arguably, a major corporation, Disney, got to be where it is, simply by having stories about Princesses.
