Just before Lent, many people celebrate before their observation. For example in New Orleans people celebrate with the festival of Mardi Gras on Shrove Tuesday and in Olney, England people have pancake races. In this wonderful book you will learn about Holy Week including Palm Sunday, the "custom of washing other people's feet" on Thursday, Good Friday, the `round the world customs on Easter Eve and the "miracle of Jesus' resurrection" on Easter Sunday. It is a time of joyous celebration. Does your family do anything special on Easter?
This is a very well written, concise account of this very important Christian holiday. The photography and text highlight not only the solemnity of the celebration, but also the joy. The photography, although heavily centered in the United States, does have examples from around the world. In the back of the book there is a glossary, a map indicating where the photographs were taken, an excellent section where more factual information can be found, a recipe for "Franny's Tatales" and additional recommended book and web site resources.
