Everyone may be familiar with Halloween and trick-or-treating. But what do you know about Samhain? Have you heard the phrase "Remember, remember the 5th of November" and wondered what was so special about it?
As we enter the holiday season, why not take a look at Holidays, Festivals, and Celebrations of the World Dictionary. This dictionary, available through CREDO Reference, "describes holidays, festivals, commemorations, holy days, feasts and fasts, and other observances from all parts of the world. The entries cover popular, ethnic, religious, and historic events of international, national, regional, and local significance."
You can learn more about historical celebrations, and maybe find a new tradition to start with your family and friends.
