The puritans had a long-lasting effect on english society and , to some extent , our own. with someone, brainstorm aspects of society today that seem "puritan" in origin.
i know that puritans were a very large and powerful group among the dissenting protestants.

The modern legacies of the Puritans are those people who believe that
* young people's clothing is immodest
* sex outside of marriage is immoral
* today's music is evil
* even mild swear words are wrong
I'm sure you and your friends can think of other examples of modern Puritanism.

-mild swear words
I don't know if this is right, please help.
But you didn't explain how your list is an example of modern Puritanism.
Your question asks for aspects of society -- not just a list of nouns.
-clothing, because back then the clothing were usually worn in dark colours and and were supposed to be covering everything
-church services, because back then they were simple and plain, but now they're not
-drinking, because back then people used to drink alot mostly the poor because of their lackness to buy the good food, but now people are just drinking casually
-gambling, because back then there used to be a lot of gambling which caused alot of troubles
-music, because back then the music was religiouus type but now its full of swear words
-mild swear words because back then you weren't allowed to utter a single swaer word but now people swear all the time
is this right please help, I have tried and tried
That looks great, Sara. :-)
thank u Ms. Sue you have delighted me
You're very welcome, Sara.
