Description: Why do we: Christen ships and sailing vessels or refer to them as she? Avoid the number thirteen, breaking mirrors or walking under ladders? Use the phrase having a skeleton in the cupboard? Dress baby boys in blue, speak of true blue or blue-blooded? Decorate the Christmas Tree or eat Easter Eggs? Kiss under the mistletoe or 'trick or treat on Halloween? In this easy-to-read book a revised and updated re-publication of her previous book, Curious and Curiouser! author, lecturer and public speaker, Dr. Monica-Maria Stapelberg, shares the results of her many years of research to uncover the historical background behind numerous commonly-held beliefs and traditions. These range from general popular beliefs to the more specific and enlightening traditions of western culture. Strange but True also brings to light how many of our day-to-day words, phrases and actions are anchored in past ritual or sacrificial observances, or simply based on fearful superstitious notions. This book is a must read for a curious mind!
