About

Overview

America's calendar is always adding new holidays, and some of them are truly odd. People from all over the world have moved to America, bringing unique traditions with them along the way. Other traditions are just silly and fun, such as September 19th's "Talk Like a Pirate Day." With its high-interest subject matter and photographs, this book will show readers the many holidays they've been missing, and maybe some they'd rather not celebrate at all.
