For the next phase of the plan I can really use your help, dear readers.
Please share your personal and family traditions associated with the American holidays I’m basing the 2019 Bakcheion calendar on.
Foods, games, songs, handicrafts, superstitions, recollections, etc. All that good folkish shit. I’m doing the relevant academic research but I’d much rather have material from real people to draw on.
Then it’s just a matter of giving it a proper Dionysian overlay (and incorporating the customs and practices detailed in our aitia) and then we’ll have something fan-fucking-tastic to play with this year.
I hope you will.
In fact, if you send me pics and write-ups of your festive observances I’ll throw them up on the site.
