If employees were granted every holiday featured in this coverage of days sacred to the world's major and lesser known religions, the work year would be brief indeed. Organized by religion (including Zoroastrianism, New World expressions of West African religions, and neo-paganism), each chapter provides an overview of the religion's history and tenets, and its holy days in the context of the calendar (solar, lunar, or lunisolar) or seasonal cycles (in the case of Native American tribal religions) follow. Traces the development of diverse calendars; provides Internet resources; and lists holidays chronologically as well as alphabetically. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
