Description
Why do men wear ties? Who began the tradition of the diamond engagement ring? Why does a mother kiss a child's wound? Why do we raise a white flag in truce? Tad Tuleja sheds light on the whole story behind these common customs and hundreds more. Behavior and traditions that we take for granted have fascinating origins, and this book also reveals why they have survived the centuries. These intriguing glimpses into America's curious customs help us understand why we do what we do and offer entertaining insights into history and culture. Copyright © Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.
