Forgotten The true meaning of most traditional rituals that I am familiar with are forgotten and replaced with something distorted In fact in the story The Lottery by Shirley Jackson the true meaning of the lotterys ritual is forgotten But on the other hand violence still remains a very remembered role in this gruesome lottery The true meaning of the lotterys ritual is forgotten as is with the sport of boxing and Christmas First boxing matches are an example of a ritual that has forgotten its true meaning but retained the violence Boxing should at least be reconsidered or modified Even though murder is not allowed in modern boxing from my perspective violence is hard to see as just a sport Boxing is a ritual with close violent similarities to Shirley Jacksons The Lottery Second exchanging gifts on Christmas is a ritual that has definitely lost all of its original meaning My understanding of the meaning of Christmas is to exchange gifts to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ For as long as I can remember Christmas morning has had nothing to do with celebrating Christs birthday and everything to do with receiving new toys For most of us Christmas is another example of a ritual that has forgotten its original meaning Therefore this story is an awakening to the forgotten meanings of rituals the truth Boxing and Christmas have most definitely lost their originality Why must one remember the original characteristics of a ritual The most important answer for this question is to preserve the true meaning of the ritual that has been forgotten
