The chapters in the book are actually the celebratory event:
New Years, Valentines Day, Easter & St. Patricks Day, Passover, Mothers day and Fathers day, memorial day, etc etc
Within each chpater there are a couple of different menus, usually 3 or 4 so you have some variety on what to pull together. For thanksgiving, for example, the menus are: A family Thanksgiving, A Harvest Feast for friends, Substitite Main dishes for thanksgiving dinner, and Substitite Stuffings
There are breads, salads, main dishes, side dishes, the whole works. Everything I've made so far has been great. I still use my other cookbooks at holidays too but this one definitely has the right dishes paired up with the different themes of the holidays.
