Holidays Around the World: Celebrate Easter

Full Product Description

"Celebrate Easter" continues the spectacular "Holidays Around the World" series by looking at Easter celebrations all over the world. Using fairly brief text and approximately 25 vibrant photographs, the book gives a flavour for the holiday from a global perspective. "Celebrate Easter" focuses on historical and cultural aspects of the holiday: traditions, food, and types of celebration. The extensive back matter includes fun facts; a recipe; a map showing the locations of the photographs in the book; a resource list of books, videos, and Web sites; and, a note from an expert consultant. This note, aimed at parents and teachers, helps put Easter in a greater cultural and historic context. "Celebrate Easter" shows a range of celebrations of the holiest day in the Christian calendar. Traditional Easter dances in Africa, Easter feasts in Australia, and Easter egg dying in many locations are all rich observances of a holiday celebrated all over the world. Deborah Heiligman's inviting, second-person text evokes the flavour of Easter - its springtime setting, its associations with new life - while providing accessible rich information about its origins and variations.
