Today is Vanity. An excessive love of self.
This is based on an old story I once read, but I cannot remember where I read it. I do not claim responsibility for the basis of this idea, although I did make it my own.
Seven Deadly Sins: Vanity
Once upon a time, the vainest woman in the village was given a magical mirror by an enchantress that enhanced her beauty so much, she became enraged and jealous at her own reflection.
Day after day, she would gaze at herself, and when her husband begged her to come away, she would shout at him, accusing him of wanting the beautiful reflection for himself.
She wished so hard that she could be just like her reflection.
One day she got her wish.
She was incredibly beautiful, but she was as cold and unfeeling as the glass of the mirror itself.
