Holidays and Festivals: New Year
Anonymous Submitter: “Every single picture in this book is better than the cover picture. Worse yet, there is no mention of clown skiing anywhere in the text. Everyone at work let out a little sound of terror when viewing the clowns. I had to turn the cover upside down to write this email.”
Holly: Mary, avert your eyes. (She has a bit of a clown phobia. Her new co-worker left a severed clown head on her desk recently, which I LOVE!) What do these clowns have to do with New Year? What if someone new to the U.S. picked up this book to find out how Americans celebrate the New Year, and then showed up to a party decked out like a clown?
