9781869403829: Holiday Seasons: New Year, Easter and Christmas in Nineteenth-Century New Zealand (AUP Studies in Cultural and Social History series)

Taking readers back in time and across the seas, this peek inside the lives of New Zealand settlers offers delightful descriptions of traditional British festivals and documents their development after being transplanted into the young colony. Though the seasons were reversed, the vegetation unfamiliar, and the land isolated, the early colonial New Zealanders were devoted to their traditions and kept them up in the face of not only their physical environment but also the wide variety of religious cultures represented by both the colonists and the native islanders. The celebrations became unique to the islands that nurtured them, mixing traditions of Presbyterians and Catholics with Baptists, Anglicans, and the Maori.

Book Description Auckland University Press, New Zealand, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 210 x 196 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. In this entertaining and lively book, Alison Clarke shows how colonial settlers from the northern hemisphere adapted the age-old festivals of Christmas, New Year and Easter to a new world of upside-down seasons, unfamiliar vegetation and cultural diversity. They decorated their homes with pohutukawa at Christmas and ate green peas and new potatoes; they went to the races at New Year and on hunting trips at Easter. But they still ate plum pudding on 25 December, went first footing at New Year and observed Easter with traditional services and hot cross buns. Catholics and Anglicans, Methodists and Presbyterians had different priorities in celebrating Christian festivals, and the friction between those who wanted a day off to picnic and those who wanted to worship at church was integral to the development of these holidays in New Zealand. Similarly, we owe many of our festive customs to the differences between the English, Irish and Scottish ways of celebrating their holidays. Holiday Seasons reminds us that along with vision, dedication and a capacity for hard work, our forebears also brought jollity and frivolity. Bookseller Inventory # AAN9781869403829
