Our American Holidays: Their Meaning and Spirit

Our American Holidays: Their Meaning and Spirit was originally published in 1906, and is at once a heartwarming reminiscence on the Victorian Era in America and a reminder of the inspiration and delight our most beloved Traditional holidays - Christmas, Thanksgiving Day, Easter, Halloween - as well as the national identity and pride our uniquely American holidays - Independence Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln and George Washington - can still hold for us today. Compiled from the pages of St. Nicholas Magazine, a popular turn of the Century publication for youth ages five to eighteen, Our American Holidays: Their Meaning and Spirit is an ideal resource for reclaiming the original, uncommercialized significance and character of every American holiday for ourselves, and for sharing that vision, inspiration and delight with the children we love.
