Book Recommendation: Celebrations by Becky Stevens Cordello

I bought this book several years ago at a thrift store, and have not taken full advantage of it. I am going to keep it handy this year, and use it to plan our holiday festivities.

This would be such a wonderful book, along the lines of Mrs. Sharp's Traditions by Sarah ban Breathnach, to walk through during the coming year. Ms. Cordello has gathered many beautiful illustrations and quotations from antique magazines such as the Delineator.

There are craft projects, party ideas, and historical background for each holiday, even some obscure holidays that deserve to be resurrected.

Although this book was written in the 1970s, it does not have that "Far Out" look that most books of that era have.
