Product Description

by Luisah Teish

Many people are unaware of the connection between holidays and the earth-based seasonal traditions from which these special days evolved. Using myth, folklore, and poetry, this book reacquaints readers with well-known traditions. Organized by season, each section begins with a story followed by rituals that readers can enact to create their own celebrations. Ceremonies and traditions come from Africa, Europe, the Americas, Asia, and the South Pacific, from Christmas and Kwanzaa to the Ritual of the Cleansing Fire and the Building of the Autumn Equinox Altar
