The Ancient Celtic Festivals: and How We Celebrate Them Today
Travel 2,500 years back in time to find out where many of our modern holiday traditions originated. • Charming full-color ink and watercolor illustrations throughout. • This valuable resource for teachers and parents uses hands-on activities, natural science facts, and observations to explore the concepts of measuring time, making calendars, and marking seasonal celebrations. • Shows how our popular holiday traditions are rooted in nature, beginning as the seasonal festivals of an ancient society. Children love holiday celebrations but most don't know why they wear masks on Halloween or watch for the groundhog on February 2. Now they can discover that many of our modern traditions started with the festivals of the ancient Celts. The Celts were farming people, so their festivals marked the important events of the agricultural year. Imbolc, in very early spring, celebrated the birth of new lambs, while Samhain, in late fall, celebrated the end of the growing season and the beginning of winter. If we look at our modern calendar, we'll find Groundhog Day falling where Imbolc did, Halloween where the Celts celebrated Samhain, and a host of other holiday correspondences. That's because descendants of the Celts were among the first Europeans to settle in the New World, bringing th...

- The Celtic legend of Jack O' Lantern and the origins of Halloween rewritten in a positive way: no Monsters, Ghosts, Witches, Werewolves, etc. just a man and his life’s journey- Illustrated with 22 drawings- Seanchai Library Special EditionRead and listen this tale loosely based on the Celtic legend of Jack O' Lantern and Samhain feast, from the voice of a 'Seanchai', a traditional Irish storyteller, Shandon Loring, chief bard at the Seanchai Library ( http://bit.ly/Seanchai ).BlurbAccording to an ancient Celtic legend it is said that on the night of Samhain (The Celtic New Year's Eve), a night that is outside the cycle of time because it belongs neither to the Old Year that has just ended nor the New Year that has not yet begun, it may be possible to discern, in the mists that separate the world of the living from that of the spirits, a man who wanders in search of the road to Paradise. He holds his lantern in a hollowed out pumpkin, and inside it there would be a burning firebrand from the embers of hell. That man is Jack!Jack O’ Lantern.
