Here’s a different kind of Season’s Greetings from the Gallery of Folklore and Popular Culture.
We’re moving into a festive quarter of 2019 with St. Patrick’s Day and Mardi Gras, and the Gallery has many appropriate artifacts for these celebrations. Check out these colorful examples and pursue others that you may have missed before.
This website is dedicated to exploring material culture and contemplating the possible meanings for people who possess these objects. Additionally, we provide information about the backgrounds of the artifacts.
As a professional folklorist, I have collected these objects over the decades. To some, these items might seem trivial. NOT SO. I consider them cultural and historical gems, important clues about society that need to be identified and preserved.
Visit the Discussion Board to post comments or personal stories about objects. Additionally, we solicit your input to correct errors and add enlightenment. We encourage you to contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
This site is constantly growing and evolving, so KEEP ON COMING BACK!
