Animals are hardwired to greet each other.
Does my sentence mean “Animals forever greet each other”?

▪ a hardwired network — often used figuratively ▪ Humans are hardwired for speech. = Speech is hardwired in/into the human brain. ▪ Mothers are hardwired to protect their children.
The quoted sentences are from a reading passage:
"This year’s observance of the National Day of the American Cowboy falls on July 22".
According to Collins fall can mean “to occur at a specified time, Christmas falls on a Sunday”,
So it should mean “each July 22 is the National Day of the American Cowboy”. But since there is “this year” in the first sentence I think it should mean it falls on different day each year. Is that right?
However, there is another sentence:
“I am proud that July 22nd is the National Day of the Cowboy” which makes me think the Day is set.
Could you please explain that?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you in advance.
