"A fun and interesting introduction to festivals from around the globe"
A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month October 2023
A book that repays endless revisiting, this handsomely presented introduction to the very many festivals of all kinds that take place across the world is a treat.
The busy pages convey the different ways in which celebrations of changing seasons, origin stories, religious beliefs, important family moments and the world around us take place and are enjoyed. It is fun to be introduced to interesting new rituals, costumes and music and also interesting to see how many characteristics of festivals are repeated across the globe.
