Format: Paperback
This book helped me reclaim the holidays. By reading this book I have a much better understanding of the history of our modern day holidays and how they have changed over time. This book helped me decide for myself what the holidays mean to me. In addition to just being an informative and entertaining read it enabled me to get in touch with the connection between the holidays we celebrate, the different stages of mother and human nature, and the role of the divine feminine in our holiday story. As the holidays came and went there was always a part of me that wondered what the point of it all was. This book helped me think of the holidays as more than just a day off work. I highly recommend it.

I would highly recommend this book. It covers more than just the history of the purpose and meaning of our holidays but also delves into the history of religion and how religions have used holidays to propagate their messages and purposes. What is even more exciting about this book is that it helped me understand why I still enjoy celebrating holiday traditions even when I did not buy into the whole religious and commercial aspects of our modern day holidays. It is an enjoyable, enlightening and entertaining read that I am recommending to all my friends and family.

Easy Writing Style Jan. 2 2011
By Rob Mashoo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The authoress' writing style makes for a truly pleasant read. She gives credit where credit is due and this is a nice compliment to the book as a whole. The information given on each holiday is sufficient so as not to choke the reader down with information overload. My only complaint with the book is the pot-shots made toward religion as a whole. She referred to Jesus as the "so called Jesus", she implied that Sarah (Abraham's wife) as being senile. I'm not sure if she was being serious or just being silly, but the writing style made up for it. This book gives a history of holidays most celebrate along with the authoress' point of view and feelings attached. If you are looking in depth history, you may want to look elsewhere but for an informative and easy to understand history on holidays, this one is for you.

Good To Know March 16 2010

A very informative and topical book. It tells us how all the holidays came about based on folk culture and in some cases fact. The authoress writes with humor and the work is entertaining.
