Holidays and Celebrations Set by Various


Holidays and Celebrations Set by Various

This attractive new Holidays and Celebrations set explores how different religious and cultural holidays and observances are celebrated around the world. Although shared beliefs unite the seven world regions and allow celebrations to cross international borders, individual countries and cultures add nuances to these festivities to create their own unique traditions. Each volume is divided into two parts. The first part introduces readers to the origins, history, and common practices associated with the holidays. The second part explores how the geography, culture, and history of a region have shaped the way in which communities celebrate these holidays, describing the unique traditions and customs of each region.
