Description: What are the halcyon days? On what date do the dog days begin? What is Hansel Monday? How do Chinese, Muslim, Mesoamerican, Jewish, and Babylonian calendars differ from Christian calendars? The answers to these and hundreds of other intriguing questions about the way humans have marked and measured time over the millennia can be found in The Oxford Book of Days.

In the tradition of almanacs and Chambers's original Book of Days, the authors have collected a rich body of historical fact, legend, lore, and literature for each day of the year. But this astonishing range of information is blended with wit and scholarship to provide an authoritative, beautifully referenced work. Beginning with a January-to-December listing, it offers general sections on each month, day-by-day listings, notes on the seasons, the months, and the days of the week. An indispensable source for all, this fascinating book provides readers with a unique and easily accessed guide to be treasured year-round.
