Feels Like Home 11 Feb. 2013
By defaoitavitch - Published on
Format: Paperback
Though essentially a book about celebrating the seasons and the natural cycle in a Celtic Christian sort of way, this book provides so many wonderful ideas for celebrating different times of the year, with children in particular, that it should provide a wealth of ideas for anyone interested in keeping both themselves, their family and /or their friends connected with the land and its yearly cycle. The book celebrates the seasons through myth, through song, through making, playing and religion and has managed to combine a huge amount of lore into a small volume. Though many of the festivities and activities are still practiced today in Ireland, the rapidity with which such folklore and tradition is being lost is quite astounding and this book serves as a hopeful light in the maintenance and promotion of a cultural connectedness with Land and Spirit.
