Festivals are happy, joyful occasions. No matter where you live, or why you celebrate, a festival is a party to be enjoyed. Many festivals have certain customs such as fireworks, or special foods and costumes. Here we find the story associated with each of the eight highlighted festivals including the origin of Kwanzaa, Halloween, Purim and New Year. Each story is six to eight pages in length, and the country of origin for each festival is mentioned, making this book an excellent multicultural title for the elementary and middle school collection.
