| Book Description: |
Why do we hang horseshoes for good luck or place wreaths on our doors? Why does the groom carry his new bride over the threshold? These customs come from a time when people had a sacred relationship with their homes and the spirits who lived there with them. This book draws on studies and classic literature from old Europe to explain the pagan roots behind these traditions.
