Glamour - Alluring beauty or charm; cast a spell over someone or something; a kind of haze in the air, causing things to appear different from what they really are.
From Scots “gramarye” (magic, enchantment, spell). This word in turn comes from Old French.
I find it interesting that the word Glamour has its origin in magic.
For me glamour is something you watch at distance. Maybe I’ve never been in a glamorous situation, but I believe it is like fog: you see it as some distance, but you don’t stand in the middle of it.
So glamour is something you watch, something that happens to somebody else, something that you can stand in the middle of but don’t be a part of because you know you are real.
