|Summary, etc.:|| Examines the origins of Christmas symbols--trees, ornaments, Yule logs, Santa Claus, cards, Christmas colors, and many other holiday observances.
Traces the origins of our favorite holiday customs and symbols, many of which antedate the first Christmas. Each of our holidays has its own familiar traditions: Trick-or-treating on Halloween, eating turkey on Thanksgiving, waiting for Santa Claus on Christmas, exchanging cards on Valentine's Day. But where do these customs come from, when did they begin, and why do we continue to observe them? In the engaging blend of careful research and lively prose that has earned her books a lasting place on the holiday bookshelf, Edna Barth explores the multicultural origins and evolution of the familiar and not-so-familiar symbols and legends associated with our favorite holidays. Full of fascinating historical details and little-known stories, these books are both informative and engaging. Festively illustrated by Ursula Arndt, this volume includes an annotated list of holiday stories and poems, activities, and an index.
