Celebrations throughout the year often have special significance within a culture, and people go to great lengths to make the day memorable. They might throw a party, or they could prepare a traditional meal and invite guests to join them. If there are single people invited who have never met, it could be a day to remember by a couple introduced at an event. Their first meeting might not yet be a relationship, but one could appear when they realize they have much in common when talking throughout the day.
Meeting the right person often depends upon the shakiness of timing or coincidence, but finding the love of a person's life is certainly worth depending upon these methods. A friend or relative might have chosen to celebrate a historic event, and they invited just about everyone they could think of to make sure it was a huge success. Finding out they were expected to come, a single person might have tried for an excuse and failed. It was just their luck they had nothing else to do, and disappointing a friend was out of the question.
Sitting down to a traditional meal next to a stranger is not always something to look forward to, but finding out the things in common two people have can make the meal a success. If attraction is obvious for both of them, it could be a perfect meal they will not even remember eating. Dining together could take on a whole new meaning as they compare notes, and they will only remember that this is the day they met before their first real date.
Finding the right person at the right time might take luck, but it can be considered good for those who end up with a loving relationship. They might have passed up the opportunity, but their lack of something better to do was lucky for them.
