651. How does it feel to wake up and see the world covered by a blanket of white snow? What is the first thing you would do and why? Would your feeling change if you found out you still had school? Why or why not?

652. Imagine that the snow was piled so high that it completely blocked your window. Would your feeling be any different? How would your parents feel if they saw the snow piled that high and why?

653. What would you do if you saw a person slip on an icy patch of sidewalk and why? Would you do the same thing if it was a family member or a complete stranger and why?

654. How would your reaction change if you saw a car spin out and crash into a snow embankment? Do you think that most people would do the same thing as you? Why or why not?

655. What is the most memorable thing you've ever seen during the winter and why? What would have made the event less memorable? How would your memory change if you heard about it in a story instead of experiencing it first hand?

656. How do you think the event would have been different if you were blind and could only use your other sense to observe it? Would it have been as memorable? Why or why not?

657. How do you feel when you see a large pile of Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa gifts and why? Do you ever do anything special to try to figure out what the gifts are? Why or why not?

658. How would the sight of all those gifts affect you differently if you were very poor? Why is it important to remember people who are less fortunate than you during the holiday season?

659. Which of the following events would you rather see and why: the Winter Olympics, the Super Bowl, New Year's Eve in Times Square, New York, the lighting of the biggest Christmas tree in the world?

660. How would attending that event make you feel and why? Who would you want to accompany you and why? How would the event be different if you saw it alone?
