According to James Farmer Jr’s closing comments about unjust laws, it is necessary for citizens to protest against unfair laws because laws are intended to be for protection, instead of making people live in fear and laws should be for everyone. An example of why James Farmer Jr thinks laws are meant to protect people is, “My teammates and I saw a man strung up by his neck and set on fire… but the law did nothing.” This quote explains that laws in Texas do not protect people, but are making people afraid because the law does nothing to stop people from getting hurt by others. Another example on why it is necessary to protest against unfair laws is, “Were his children waiting up for him? …
By just experiencing what Christmas is lik in different perspectives, can change how a person sees things. Scrooge was able to see what Christmas was like for himself in the past, for other people in the present, and how he ends up in the future through the Ghosts that teach him to be appreciative.

A modern-day myth that corporations have created is that Christmas is a time of giving gifts and spending time with the family. While the latter part is partially true, the giving part was not added until centuries after the first Christmas was celebrated. Christmas began officially when the Pope, Julius 1, said that the birthday of Jesus Christ would be on 25th of December. Nowadays corporations have turned it into a multi-billion dollar holiday season that starts usually from November the 1st to December the 25th. They have made people inadvertently think more of buying gifts than the actual celebration of the birth of Jesus.
The Christmas spirit has been significantly transformed by the overwhelming presence of commercialism during the holiday season.

The parent’s hide the pickle and on Christmas day, legend has it, it will give whoever finds it good luck.

My grandmother bought this tree topper that sparkled, glossed and so unique! When we went to the house of glass it changed for me.
To me the true meaning of christmas is spending time with family, traditions, sharing love and gifts, creating memories and celebrating the birth of christ. On Christmas, normally, my family open gifts, cook a grand meal, and watch christmas movies. There is not much of a tradition for my family on christmas besides the food that is prepared. Each year is different from my view point. One Christmas eve, we were surprised by other family members.
Topic: Choose the one activity you listed as most important in question #1 and tell us why it is significant. Christmas is the time everyone should give God worship and thanks for allowing his son Jesus Christ to be born. It’s the day everyone should be with their family, friends, and loved ones underneath the fireplace watching and singing Christmas Carols. This day is for everyone, whether you believe in Jesus Christ or any other religious aspects. As for myself being a Christian and believing in God, I felt it was my mission to give back to the community and do more for the less fortunate.
