Short Description

Death is a natural and inevitable part of the human experience. And most civilizations, from ancient to modern, have devoted a special holiday to honoring the dead. Although many of these holidays have assumed a secular attitude, the original, supernatural tone of these days still colors the celebrations. Halloween, or All Hallow's Eve as it was once known, has become a day for children to don costumes, trick-or-treat for candy, and play pranks. Outside the United States, however, people in many countries still set aside a day to honor and pray for the deceased. This book looks at the different holidays honoring the dead from around the world, including Halloween, All Souls' Day, Day of the Dead, Tomb Sweeping Day, and the Ghost Festival. Each title in this series contains color photos and illustrations throughout, and back matter including: an index and further resource lists for books and online resources. Key Icons appear throughout the books in this series in an effort to encourage library readers to build knowledge, gain awareness, explore possibilities and expand their viewpoints through our content rich non-fiction books. Key Icons in this series are as follows: Words to Understand are shown at the front of each chapter with definitions.

Educational Video features throughout have QR codes linked to online videos that provide supplemental interviews, documentaries, and historical clips.

And a Series Glossary of Key Terms is included in the back matter containing terminology used throughout the series.
