Everyone has a favorite holiday. For some people, the most important holidays of the year express who they are and what they believe. For other people, the best holidays are filled with the simple pleasures of good fun. Many holidays are a little of both-serious and fun-a time to honor cultural traditions, enjoy good food, and spend quality time with family members.

World Holidays: A Rosen Guide for Children presents more than 100 holidays celebrated around the world and throughout the year. They were chosen to show the great diversity of the world's religions, cultural, and national celebrations.

Browsing through World Holidays you will find many common themes. Cross-references will direct you from one holiday to another, similar celebration. If you are looking for holidays celebrated at a certain time of year, you'll find that information in the calendars included at the end of this book. If you're writing a report, planning activities bases on cultures and countries, or just trying to find out what makes people tick, you should find what you are looking for in World Holidays.
