In To Kill a Mockingbird, although Harper Lee shows how Maycomb can appear as racist, presents a side of simplicity and a family like town worth celebrating. Throughout the book, Harper Lee gives us many examples why Maycomb is not just a town, but one worth celebrating. An example of this appears when Miss Maudie’s house burns on fire. Around half way into the book Miss Maudie’s house begins to burn on fire. Many fire trucks arrive to put out the fire and the town people to see what happened and try to help out.
What caught my attention when I first walked into the auditorium was all the bright colors and the cheerful music playing in the background. The US couldn’t be any more different in the way that we celebrate the lives of our loves ones. Typically, mourning in the US is associated with dark colors and sadness. We don’t have a holiday that really celebrates our passed ancestors or loved ones the way that Mexico and Latin American counties do. Going to this exhibit really helped me see the difference in Dia De Los Muertos and the United State’s Halloween.
One famous ritual that is known by many is the stomp dance. A firekeeper begins to light a fire at dawn that will last for the duration of the stomp dance. The fire is a sacred symbol to the Cherokees and is built at the bottom of a pit so that the fire will not burn out. This ritual lasts from dawn until sun down where the stomp dance soon comes into play. The participants include a leader and ‘shakers’ which are men or women that wear leg rattles made out of turtle shells.
With all of the evidence pointing towards Dean Munsch being the killer, the ladies of Kappa Kappa Tau on Tuesday’s Scream Queens found themselves with but one option: Kill. Dean. Munsch. After their Thanksgiving ended in the most horrific way imaginable — Gigi’s (Nasim Pedrad) head was served on a platter — the Chanels decided to celebrate their favorite holiday, Black Friday. Other than Chanel-O-Ween, this is Chanel #1 's favorite holiday, because Chanel enjoys buying deliberately cheap gifts for her friends as a way to ingratiate them even more while forcing them to deal with the confusion of receiving something so vile.
The metaphor, ‘enough coloured lights to make a Christmas tree of Gatsby’s enormous garden’ conveys the sheer opulence of the party. Generally the public associate Christmas with the celebration of the Christian faith however this implies that consumerism has replaced religion in the opulent society of New York in the 20’s. This is further reinforced by Dr T.J. Eckleburg’s eyes, a billboard mentioned in Chapter 2. These eyes grow to become a God-like figure keeping a ‘watchful vigil’ over the elite of New York. This indicates that religion came second to consumerism as the figure seen as the Valley’s ‘God’, is a billboard made to help the rich make profit from the poor residents of the Valley.
The dances they performed had a highly religious meaning, which is why it was very important to execute every step with exactness. They also had dances for their own enjoyment in which they danced for personal or family events. Sam: The Aztecs also had spectacular dances such as the Voladores de Papantla ,the Sun Dance, in which the dancers climbed a high pole or mast; they tied themselves to long cords wound around the pole. They would jump off the pole, and the cords would unwind making them look like flying birds. When the Spaniards saw this dance they were extremely impressed by their courage and
She was born to parents who were both strongly Catholic. Growing up she was deeply connected with religion. She was close to her mother, due to her father’s strictness.

At the Morris Museum of art is home to a wide-ranging and permanent collection of works of art dating from the early eighteenth century to the present.

The Hollywood Walk of Fame is a very special place that visitors love to adore. When a celebrity passes away, they place flowers at the star. If there is an accident, fans come to pray together at the Hollywood star. When controversy strikes there is a situation on Hollywood Boulevard near the star. However, Wednesday was the first time in a long time where a star was so mutilated that charges will be pressed.
The festivals involved bonfires to attract bats, and the people would wear masks to appease evil spirits. Going door to door dressed in costumes asking for treats goes back to the Middle Ages. Poor people would go door to door asking for food in return for prayers. In the United States during the late 1800s, many pranks were made. The pranks got out of hand and as a result town leaders encouraged people to dress up
