631. St. Patrick's Day is a holiday meant to celebrate Irish heritage. Do you think it's important to celebrate your own heritage? Why or why not?

632. If you were to have a festival for your own heritage, what kind of activities would you take part in? What colors and costumes might you wear? What would you eat to commemorate your ancestry and why?

633. Irish cultural heritage is loud and clear on St. Patrick's Day, but what about on other days of the year? What are some other aspects of Irish culture that you experience during the rest of the year?

634. There are many different cultures that have mixed with American culture other than simply Irish culture. What are some other cultures that you notice in your everyday life including your food, music, language and more? Why do you think America has become such a melting pot of different cultures?

635. What are the benefits of having a society that includes multiple cultural influences? What issues might come up if Americans tried to resist all other cultures and remain completely American in every way? Why?

636. As different cultures adapt to the modern world, how do you think cultural influence will change in the next 100 years? Will different countries act more similarly? Why or why not?

637. On St. Patrick's Day, the color green makes you think of Ireland, leprechauns, and clovers. What does the color green make you think of on other days? Why might a person dressed all in green on a non-St. Patrick's Day come across as strange?

638. Imagine that you woke up on St. Patrick's Day with completely green skin! How would your family and friends react? What might be the benefits of your St. Patrick's Day-tinted outer layer? How would you try to reverse whatever changed you into shamrock color?

639. Many adults use cultural holidays like St. Patrick's Day and Cinco de Mayo to drink a lot of beer and get crazy. What aspects of the holidays might these crazy partiers miss out on? Why might being wild and uninhibited be more important to them than Irish culture?

640. St. Patrick, the namesake of the holiday, has visited your family for dinner. As a very religious man, what might he have to say about what St. Patrick's Day has become? Do you think there would be any aspects of the holiday he would like? Why or why not?
