Anyone know of any books that mention day of the dead or any cultural holidays? The Christmas theme novels that I see are usually cheesy romances which is not exactly in my taste.

Most books that I have read do not incorporate holidays into the settings.

Karen | 6 comments I read "The Namesake", which incorporates Indian holidays and traditions in it. Great book!

We read that Annie! I had forgotten about that book. I remember liking that book in Professor Unger's comparative literature class.... I know that we differed on a lot of the books. But that is okay, we had some great discussions! I miss those days!
