Same for me. Where 'description' is something like "Christmas at 
home", "Climbing in Surrey", or "Party at Reinhard's".

I don't have a separate Category for this but rather use 
the 'Keywords'-category. I've keywords like "climbing", "party", "holiday". 
Maybe using an additional 'Event'-category would be a good idea for finer 
granularity, but then my information available via the folder name is 
somehow redundant :(
