Hungarian Folk Customs

£9.99

Product description

"The traditions that pervade and in some ways control the life of a nation form a very complex expression of the emotions, ideas, morals and beliefs of its people. The seasonal and ritual festivals of the year run parallel to the ceremony of birth, christening, wedding and funeral that mark out the stages in man's life. Tekla Domotor offers the reader a complete picture of Hungarian traditions. She includes the Nativity play, wassailing, carnival mummery and Easter celebrations, as well as other Hungarian folk customs, the sprinkling of water and the painting of eggs at Easter, the erection of the maypole, the jumping of St. John's Fire and the custom of throwing a straw dummy into a stream to ward off plagues. The book is illustrated with 28 drawings, 35 black-and-white and 16 colour photographs."

Book in good condition with some wear to the cover.
