Episode Guide »
Most of our holidays and celebrations were developed to mark the cycles of nature and they have existed in traditional forms for centuries. They bind the past to the present and predict the future. They are a basic part of every society that has ever existed. But when these ceremonies arrived in America, they started to change. No longer controlled by convention these ancient celebrations began to evolve. Explore with Burt Wolf what happened to these holidays when this nation got its first taste of freedom.
