According to the authors themselves and what they said in their articles, all four of the authors agreed that items change when they go to different countries. All of the authors realized that, in MacDougall’s case, Barbie changed and, in my three source’s case, Christmas changed. I enjoyed reading the articles that I chose to include in this paper. My first source, “Christmas Worldwide” was about Christmas celebrations and how they differ all around the world. That article was written by Joseph Raj and it extends MacDougall’s claim quite well. My second source, entitled “Christmas In France” was published by the French government. This article extends MacDougall’s arguments and explains in detail France’s celebrations during the Christmas season. My third source entitled “Holiday Treats add Zing, Zest to Christmas Worldwide” was written by Marie Hulupi. This article delves into the world of traditional foods that are in countries like France and Germany. This article, unlike the previous two complicates MacDougall’s claims. I enjoyed reading all of the articles because they were well written and significantly shorter than MacDougall’s article. J. Paige MacDougall is an imaginative and fantastic writer and her article was a very interesting piece of writing, and the topics she discussed were extremely thought provoking. However, sometimes in her article it would seem as though she didn’t think about the people she was writing for. Its almost like she didn’t care about who she was writing for, she probably thought her article would be read only by scholarly people and not college kids or teenagers. For example, her words were sometimes too big and her writing style to different and I imagine that a lot of people got confused about what the article was saying. Like I stated before this article was extremely well written and strong, I just think MacDougall lost sight of her audience at

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
