This text describes the demise of the Celtic peoples and the reawakening of interest and awareness of the Celtic language, heritage and spirituality. It covers the eight major seasonal festivals of the Celtic calender, and looks at the myths, gods, rituals, songs and traditions of the Celts. As the reader progresses it becomes clear that Celtic wisdom is far from obselete in our contemporary calender and landscape - much Celtic practice such as fires on November 5th and May Day holidays are still going strong. With this book however, the reader can find new depth and meaning throughout the cycle of the year. Herbal wisdom for the kitchen and garden, the meaning of special landmarks such as standing stones and sacred trees are all described.
