"Cultural critic David J. Skal takes an in-depth look at one of America's most perplexingly popular holidays in this original mix of personal anecdotes and social analysis. Skal examines the tradition's dark Celtic history and traces its evolution in the course of a few generations from a quaint, small-scale celebration to a mammoth marketing event"-- Provided by publisher.
