Reviews - What do customers think about Treasury of Celebrations: Create Celebrations that Reflect Your Values and Don't Cost the Earth?
Tired of consumerism? Nov 3, 2000
If you're tired of the greed surrounding what used to be holy-days and are now excuses for corperate extortion, you'll love this book. It provides realistic ideas for bringing the soul back into family celebrations, national holidays, and other like occasions. Most importantly, the book makes the necessary rites of passage more meaningful than expensive.
The book tries to be complete with regard to mainstream Western holidays, including information about New Year's Day, Valentine's Day, Purim, Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and other celebrations, secular and religious, such as birthdays, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, graduations, and weddings. No one book, especially one aimed at a contemporary American readership, can include every holiday you might want, but the ideas in the book are useful enough to be applicable to a wider range of days than those listed.
Everyone wants to improve the quality of their family life, and most people need to stretch their meagre paychecks a bit further. Give this book a chance, and you'll be glad you did.
