Celebrating Holidays & Festivals Around the World

Throughout history, nations and peoples have marked their calendars with special days to celebrate, commemorate, and memorialize. We set aside times to reflect on the past and future, to rest and renew physically and spiritually, and to simply have fun. This series explores the meanings and celebrations of holidays across religions and cultures around the world. It groups the holidays into volumes according to theme or by their common human experience due to their closeness on the calendar. Each volume introduces readers to the origins, history, and common practices associated with the holidays before embarking on a worldwide tour that shows the regional variations and distinctive celebrations within specific countries. The reader will learn how these holidays started, what they mean to the people who celebrate them, and how different cultures celebrate them.
