Overview

By turns thoughtful, whimsical, or romantic, Celebrate! is a collection of short stories, essays, and poetry celebrating the change of seasons and various holidays throughout the year. The selections featured will alternately turn you misty-eyed, tingle your spine, or make you think longingly of days gone by. There are reminiscences of Christmas and seasons past; poems of love, affection, and patriotism, and humorous looks at various holiday customs. The authors share their experiences in the mountains, on the farm, and at the beach, as well as giving us their intimate insights into home, family, and country. This is a book which should appeal to all those who take pleasure in celebrating and remembering holidays and who enjoy the ever-changing panorama of nature.
