KIRKUS REVIEW

From New Year's through Christmas this details the holidays and celebrations recognized in the United States and includes religious as well as secular, traditional as well as observances of other nationalities, and special commemorative memorials. Each event has a background of its history, the customs that attend it, sometimes the omens or portents or superstitions, and the foods, costumes and participation when specifically related. In addition to the expected dates, Ground Hog, April Fool's, Arbor, American Indian, Navy, Armed Forces, Bill of Rights, Forefathers', United Nations', Poetry, Citizenship, V. Atlantic Charter, and other ""Days"" are part of this calendar and a bibliography and index are practical additions for its use. Program groups, clubs, leaders of children's activities, schoolrooms, etc., will find helpful information here.
