Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Yes, Virginia, there are less-material ways to celebrate the holidays. Seton compiles dozens of stories, suggestions, recipes, and easy-to-do crafts to delight kids and adults alike. Submitted by friends, relatives, colleagues, and online sources, these activities concern 15 mostly well known occasions, including the Mexican Day of the Dead, Guy Fawkes Day, Kwanzaa, and 'Id al-Fitre (the three-day feast at the end of the Ramadan fast). Ideas span the common to the extraordinary, from dressing as a mummy for Halloween to giving a jar of fortune cookies as a New Year's Eve gift. In fact, many fall into the "random acts of human kindness" category, such as anonymously prepaying a family merchandise layaway at the local Wal-mart. Recommendations from the heart. Barbara Jacobs --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
