Dance With God: Family Ritual and Community Celebration


Holiday celebrations are special times within the lives of families — but finding ways to creatively and meaningfully tie these traditions to faith can be a challenge for parents. Gertrud Mueller Nelson's classic book, To Dance With God: Family Ritual and Community Celebration (Paulist Press, 1986), is a superb resource for parents in search of ways to connect their families with the meaning and flow of life's celebrations.

Nelson, who has a background in Montessori education, explores dozens of ideas for celebrating Christmas, the liturgical church seasons and other days through insightful chapters and beautiful illustrations.
