5-0 out of 5 stars Great Period Resource
My business associate has this book and I want one for myself. We design and manufacture holiday decorations for commercial applications. I use this book to help me design Christmas themes for historic victorian towns in particular. I recommend it highly as a source for how Christmas was depicted and celebrated in 19th Century America. It even shows the first known Christmas card. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Thanksgiving feast for the eye as well as the brain
Dana Rau`s THANKSGIVING not only explains about the Pilgrims` first thanksgiving celebrations with the Native Americans, but with color photos and reproductions of paintings, attractively elaborates on its history as a holiday, its symbols, as well as different modern-day celebrations. Fullof facts, this concise, non-fiction picture book includes a vocabulary list, as well as an index and other resources for youthful researchers.While the text and length is appropriate for the suggested age group, the large print and colorful visuals make it fine for reading aloud to younger children. Rau should be commended for her excellent use of paintings, as well as her choice of photos which touch on the multicultural aspects of the USA. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome--Fantastic
Even though I am not a member of the six nations but am Cherokee, I found this book to be very uplifting. Reading it in English is one thing but seeing it printed in a native tongue makes it all the better. The native words emit waves of feelings from worlds that have gone before. It puts into words what we as a people need to listen to and take to heart and practice in our daily lives. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars "Go outside and Play!" the wise and imperative words of my mother.
Al Gini's book is not about the nature and characteristics of Play, but rather, it is a `working' diatribe against work; with only scant attention given to `Play, Leisure and Vacation'.Paradoxically, Al Gini failed to grasp his own message.He needs to lighten up his message andplay more, either that, or change the title (a much easier solution).
5-0 out of 5 stars Slow Lifestyle Primer
This well-researched book is a great place to start to learn about the slow lifestyle. Al Gini is Professor of Philosophy at Loyola University Chicago. He's also a business consultant. He previously explored a mixture of business, work, and philosophy, in his book My Job, My Self. Be warned, he describes himself as addicted to work.
4-0 out of 5 stars Interesting concept.
Americans are overworked compared to their European partners. They work for "addicted organizations" that push them to work harder, produce more, and take less vacation time. The end results are unsatisfying workplaces, boring and repetitive jobs, and bitter employees. Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A Brick of Scholarship
This book is not for a casual reader.It is, instead, a compendium of primary source information for those curious about the calendar year in Britain.It's fascinating scholarship and absolutely authoratative in its research, but not for "just reading"!At some points, the paragraphs are so thick with citations and details that my eyes began to gloss.In general, though, the prose remains readable, even when detailing minutia.
5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent British scholar,
Hope this great book comes back into print here. It's wordy, but I always appreciate the detail and background he provides. It's out of print here, it's still in print in the UK, so I got it from there.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Source
This book is a great source for information about British customs andlore.Hutton is excited about his subject and holds it in deep regard allthe wile telling us the way it really is.I learned a lot from this bookand I consider it essential reading for everyone (especially neo-pagans)who has an interest in this subject.Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars From A Christian Perspective
I am always looking for books about the history & lore of Halloween, so I took a chance on this one.It was written a very long time ago, which made it seem even more appealing to me.However, this book did not appeal to me because the author was an apparently very devout Christian, and he spent a great deal of effort glorifying the Christian god and the Christian bible.I have NOTHING against Christians or their religion; I just don't happen to be Christian, so all of this had no meaning for me.The description of the book never mentions this aspect of the book, and I was not familiar with the author, so I didn't realize the nature of the book.The author has the opinion that we celebrate Halloween because we have separated ourselves from Jesus, etc.This sentiment is found throughout all the chapters.

3-0 out of 5 stars Glib approach to southern culture
Sadly, this book is "more of the same": poke fun of the hillbillies. It seems written from an MFA grad-student approach with an NPR polish applied. Light and witty, urban, no real feel for the subjects. Humor is great, of course, but here it doesn't quite work: there's a disconnect. A bit of a snotty tour of the South.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent, insightful read.
Roger Lyle Brown has successfully penetrated the mass psyche of the Southern festival culture. At first glance, one might not consider "festivals" to be an engaging topic, but Brown explores thissubject like a psychoanalyst, providing real insight into the southern mindvia one of its most cherished traditions - the festival.A unique piece ofwork.

5-0 out of 5 stars From the Associated Press:
"Every so often, a book comes out that is entirely, refreshingly new-- not just in approach and style, but in idea, scope and theme. RodgerLyle Brown, while doing doctoral work at Emory University, decided to weavehis journeys to Southern festivals into a tale that has most ambitioustask: to show that the way Southerners celebrate history and heritage ispart of a tapestry of melancholy that illustrates the fading of community.He succeeds mightily....For anyone interested in the South, social historyor the human condition, this is a book that is not to be missed."--Ted Anthony, Associated Press National Writer. April, 1998. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A GLIMPSE INTO CHRISTMASES LONG PAST
Christmas is a bit of an odd holiday.As Americans we never long for a good old fashioned Easter or a good old fashioned Independence Day, we always pine for a good old fashioned Christmas in the belief that those were simpler, less stressful times.As writer Joanne Martell shows in her book "American Christmases" however, those days of Christmas past may not quite be the Currier & Ives picture perfect holidays that we may think they were.Martell has collected some 250 writings, culled from newspaper articles, memoirs, journals, letters, songs, etc...on the subject of Christmas dating from the earliest colonies in Plymouth right up through 2004.These writings give readers a unique and historical insight into the Christmas holiday that we've rarely had a chance to see.
