No matter how long and dreary the winter, we all take comfort in the knowledge that spring will soon follow. But ancient peoples had no such assurance that the ever-darkening days of winter would reverse themselves and the earth would renew its growth. Their fear led to rituals and ceremonies, many designed to encourage the forces of life and light to beat back the dark forces of winter. Springtime rites were universal, practiced by such geographically diverse societies as the ancient Romans, the Native Americans, and the Mayans. To this day, virtually all religious and cultural groups have a springtime holiday with a theme of rebirth and renewal. Author Ellen Jackson tells us the fascinating details of many of these celebrations, past and present. The book includes an ancient Anglo-Saxon springtime story and a number of hands-on activities based on spring holidays.
