    1. What modern beliefs are replacing traditional ways of thinking? Discuss this question in general terms (for example, the way holidays are celebrated), as well as specifically in your home country (like the discussion on Halloween in America).

    2. As discussed in question 1, many cultures are replacing (or being pressured to replace) old traditions and customs with more modern views. Think of some major changes in your home country. Are these changes being accepted by most people in society (for example, old people, young people, men, women, etc.)? Are such changes viewed as good for society or bad? In what ways?

    3. Discuss traditional roles of men and women, and compare them to modern roles. What specifically has changed throughout the years regarding the roles of men and women? Have all of these changes been positive, or have some changes impacted men and/or women in negative ways?
