Boys Be Ambitious

Happy Boys Day in Japan! It’s odd that there’s a holiday dedicated to boys, and more recently renamed to Childrens Day (although the non-holiday Girls Day is still on March 3 and some claim Gay Day for April 4). I love how rampantly commercial the celebration of maleness can be. Is ambition also something to be bought and traded? I wonder what ambitions boys today have.
