The Eight Nature Festivals are presented in their simplest, most basic form here.

Studying many populations, countries and regions leads to an understanding of the incredible diversity and creativity connected with these festivals, and which is too complex to be presented here.

Our hope is that everyone who reads these lines will go on to do his or her own research, make discoveries, and invent personal traditions and customs in order to bring new life to communities both large and small.
