Halloween The Irish Crafts: Customs For Samhain/Halloween

A family guide for the celebration of Irish Samhain or Halloween. Only traditional well researched crafts, stories, recipes and celebration instructions are included. A good guide for children and families wishing to celebrate in the traditional Irish way.


Summary: Modern Slant on Age-old Customs
Comment: There are many books on Halloween (including another by Jack Santino), but this book is unique in presenting a look at how very old customs have persisted amid the social turmoil and political unrest of the north of Ireland. Since Santino is an American folklorist, one would expect an outsider's view of Halloween. Instead, having lived in the north of Ireland for an extended period and formed working relationships with folklorists there, Santino offers a view of a cultural phenomenon that is both sympathetic and objective. His insights are worth considering. Perhaps the only drawback to this volume is its lack of historical perspective or comparison with other Celtic cultures. Despite this, the present volume is a welcome addition to the library of anyone interested in Halloween itself or Celtic cultural remains.
