Description

A personal journey from the depths of winter through to early summer, Spring in Your Step is a ‘granny’s patchwork quilt’ of festive information, practical hints and tips, family recipes, seasonal craft projects, stories and childhood reminiscences which serve to bring new meaning, relevance and delight to the turning of the seasons and the springtime months of your year. From combating ‘January Blues’, identifying the earliest signs of spring, celebrating festivals such as Imbolc, Valentine, Carnival, Shrove Tuesday, Mothering Sunday, the Vernal Equinox and Easter, it is also sprinkled with many lesser known celebrations such as the Feast of Juno, Egg Saturday, Collop Monday, Nickannan Night, World Harmony Day, Earth Hour and Saint Mark’s Eve.

It examines the relevance and importance of the turning seasons, what that means to us, and how we can enjoy and celebrate the natural world in our everyday lives.

In our modern multi-cultural society this accessible and straightforward approach to life crosses all borders and boundaries – regardless of culture, creed, religion, nationality or gender – and invites everyone into an equal and communal partnership in experiencing and celebrating life – a joyous seasonal inspiration for young and old alike.
