Evaluation of Example 8: Day of the Dead

Passage:

“[I]t is a matter of curiosity walking as I do, for example right now on the Day of the Dead, because the Day of the Dead is something that greatly interests me. Every Day of the Dead is different from the one before and I wouldn't miss any Day of the Dead—why would I miss it, given I was interested in it?”

Analsyis:

No fallacy present. Even if the notion of a “a matter of curiosity” is a suitable substitutable paraphrase for “something I am interested in,” there is no circularity even though, from a stylistic point of view, there is unnecessary repetition. The logical structure of the passage can be translated as follows:

The Day of the Dead is something I am interested in.
Walking on the Day of the Dead is something I am interested in.

The Day of the Dead is something I am interested in.
The Day of the Dead is something I wouldn't miss.
