Uncle Rick’s Holiday Book
Appreciating the Real Meaning of America’s Special Days
A large, 8″ x 11″ volume! Uncle Rick’s Holiday Book is filled with beautiful full-color photos and famed Americana artwork!
For the last few decades, Americans have been losing their understanding of our history and heritage. One of the symptoms of this problem is the fact that we no longer realize the significance of our national holidays. When Uncle Rick was a boy in school, everybody knew that Thanksgiving was a time of giving thanks to God, as the Pilgrims did in colonial days. Everybody visited the cemeteries on Memorial Day, honoring those who died in war to keep us free and remembering their departed loved ones.
But most schools don’t teach the truth about our holidays any more. So parents must be sure their children learn at home. Now, Uncle Rick has written his Holiday Book for parents and kids to read together. He hopes you enjoy it as your family rediscovers our Christian and patriotic heritage.
Included in Uncle Rick’s Holiday Book are suggestions from Marilyn on practical ideas to add meaning to your celebrations.
