Most significant Event
Lissette taking Thomas to a downriver wedding was the most significant point of the year. He learned how Lissette's family lived and the different kind of ceremony that took place than that of the one he was accustomed to. The wedding also opened his eyes, after he was scolded for telling Lynnette stories that were deemed inappropriate and for meeting Old Man Hobb in his house of squalor. It allowed Thomas to see a different view of the land he thought he knew so well.
