Transcript of The Lottery

Mr. Summers
Mr Dunbar
Old Man Warner
Mr. Graves

The theme of the story is the Village Lottery. It culminates in a violent murder each year. A bizarre ritual that suggests how dangerous traditions can be when people follow it blindly. Before we know what kind of lottery they’re conducting, the villagers and their preparations seem harmless.

The effect of the traditions in "The Lottery" is once a year. They kill one random person in the town and the effect of that would be bad. What if it was a store owner who's wife gets chosen to be stoned. How would her family live there life without there mom/wife.

Modern paganism, also known as contemporary paganism, and neopaganism, is a group of contemporary religious movements influenced by or claiming to be derived from the various historical pagan beliefs of pre-modern Europe. Although they do share commonalities, contemporary pagan religious movements are diverse and no single set of beliefs, practices, or texts are shared by them all.
Paganism is compared to the lottery because they both have to do with human sacrifice and they do it to keep peace in the town.
