Özet

Özet

Now in paperback, the fifth edition of the classic Anniversaries and Holidays is an essential reference source for classrooms and libraries of all types and sizes. With 3,500 listings--33 percent more than the previous edition--the all-new Anniversaries and Holidays introduces an international flavor to one of the most authoritative sources on U.S. and Western European holidays.

Trawicky's meticulous research has resulted in an accurate, easy-to-use guide that is indispensable when developing programs for cultural understanding and celebrations. Among the illuminating sections is a Calendar of Fixed Days, listing by month and date civil holidays, Holy Days, and anniversaries for such red letter days as First Foot Day, International Women's Day, Tiradentes Day in Brazil, Day of the Soldier in El Salvador, or Ratu Sir Lala Sukuna Day in Fiji.

The section on Calendar Systems and Non-Gregorian Holidays will help you understand the history and structure of the Gregorian, Christian Liturgical, Jewish, Islamic and Chinese calendars. The selective list of references will assist researchers seeking additional information.

With Aniversaries and Holidays, you can celebrate every day!
