Celebrate: The History and Folklore of Holidays in Nova Scotia offers just the inspiration we need to keep is celebrating day after day, month after month. Although most of the holidays described in this book are relevant to Canadians in general, and most originated elsewhere, they have become overlaid with local customs and traditions that give them new forms and flavours. This entertaining and lively account of festivals, holidays and celebrations is a treasure-chest of lore that includes unusual facts, vignetter, and off-beat customs from the old-time celebrations and folk traditions of Nova Scotians. It is a link between our past and present sensibilities, proving once again out indebtedness to our forebears and our ingenuity for adaptation.
