About this title:

Synopsis: The South has always been famous for its hospitality and good times. On Hallowe'en a miniature Druid-fire burns in a bowl on the table. In the blazing alcohol are put fortunes wrapped in tin-foil, figs, orange-peel, raisins, almonds, and dates. The one who snatches the best will meet his sweetheart inside of a year, and all may try for a fortune from the flames.

From the Publisher: A Vintage Volume of Halloween History!

Originally published in 1919, Ruth Edna Kelley's THE BOOK OF HALLOWE'EN remains the all time classic exploration of Halloween history, from the mysterious year end rites of the ancient Celts, to the autumnal reign of Samhain, the Druid god of death, to the coming to Europe of Christianity and "All Saints Day," to the charming early 20th Century Halloween beliefs and customs of Ireland, Scotland, England, Wales, France, Germany and America. Filled with Halloween poems, games and tried and true ancient methods for divining the future (especially for discovering the identity of one's future spouse!), THE BOOK OF HALLOWE'EN opens a captivating window into the past of one of today's most beloved holidays.

This Better Days Books edition of THE BOOK OF HALLOWE'EN is a quality reprint containing the full text of the original 1919 edition, along with a new full color cover inspired by a genuine vintage Halloween card from the era.

Often imitated, but never equaled, Ruth Edna Kelley's THE BOOKS OF HALLOWE'EN remains the most complete, fun and fascinating exploration of the Halloween holiday available in this or any Century.

Vintage Halloween and antiquarian book collectors, rejoice!
