America Celebrates! A Patchwork of Weird & Wonderful Holiday Lore
Hennig Cohen (au); Tristram Potter Coffin (au). The holidays that we celebrate are relatively unchanged from their origins in faraway lands. This book is a tribute to the diversity of imagination surrounding some of America’s most honored & sometimes offbeat cultural traditions. Beginning on New Year’s Day & following the calendar year, it presents a montage of newspaper accounts, oral histories, & journal entries documenting: traditions, beliefs, legends, charms, riddles, gifts, superstitions, proverbs, recipes, poems, parades, songs, dances, games, contests & plays. Hundreds of observances are associated with the more than 60 weird & wonderful holidays!
