Celebrations Throughout the Year: Holiday Folklore
by Gus Snedeker
Special days are times for fun and togetherness. They also link us to the Earth's seasons, and they help us keep track of how time passes. Most of all, they are deeply rooted in folk tradition.
Learn more about:
* the winter holidays, like Christmas and Hanukkah.
* spring celebrations like Easter and Asian New Year's.
* fall festivals, like Halloween and the Day of the Dead.
* summer celebrations, like the Fourth of July.
Holidays and festivals draw us together. They remind us of who we are, where we come from, and what we believe. As we travel through the year, folk festivals give us strength. And they make life more fun!
