PRODUCT DETAILS
Description
A fascinating seasonal guide exploring the folklore, flavours, sayings, celebrations and songs drawn from the cultural history of the British Isles. Arranged by month, discover the stories behind the customs, stories and traditions which characterise each month of the year. Weaving little-known folk tales with recipes for traditional seasonal treats, this absorbing companion shows how important and interwoven nature and folk belief have been for thousands of years. From showing silver to the first moon of the year and January wassail; to Lammas, corn dollies and fairy feasts in August: a seasonal miscellany to rediscover lost customs and celebrate the seasons. Published in association with the Society for Storytelling, Common Ground and The Ethicurean, cultural organisations which promote and preserve folk belief and knowledge.
