Understanding Holiday Traditions: Little Known Facts

ST. GEORGE, Utah - Feb. 22, 2023 - PRLog -- When researching certain holidays for a historical novel, it was intriguing to find out how different they were in the 1800s compared to how we celebrate them today. I was amazed at the differences. After completing my novel, I decided to sit down and write about all the many holidays that we love and celebrate as a family today. The origin of many holidays may surprise you. How they got started and why may not be what you expected.

It is interesting to find out how each holiday tradition came about. It just may astound you the reasoning behind each one. Our children have fun celebrating April Fools Day as they try to fool their friends, but why do we celebrate such a day? Why do we get dressed up in costumes on Halloween evening and go trick or treating? What was the inspiration behind this fun holiday?

Is it really true that the Puritans actually stopped the Americans from celebrating Christmas, a beloved holiday that we all cherish and love? Was it really outlawed? How can that be? On Memorial Day, who were the first people that placed flowers on the graves of the soldiers? It just may surprise you. Have you heard of Juneteenth, a very important part of history? When and where was the first time it was actually celebrated and why?

The answers to these questions may be surprising. The beginnings of each American Holiday have an interesting story to tell. This book is called Understanding Holiday Traditions: Little Known Facts.

Sunnie Reviews wrote: "I really enjoyed reading the old and interesting traditions and beginnings of the various holidays we celebrate each year. It's so fun to know and come to understand the events that led up to these becoming holidays and how each has a significant historical meaning. I enjoyed the vintage cards and the mentions of how different countries celebrated these days as well. A nice way to share the meaning of holidays to family members and to learn of their true meanings."

Louise Pledge enjoyed this book and explained how she felt as she read it: "I feel that this book belongs in every home with children. Imagine the fun it would be to tell your kids the reasons they are celebrating these holidays. And then make every holiday a little more special than usual. What I probably liked the most, though, was the old postcards from each one. They were priceless!"
