Book Review: Light Love Rituals: Bulgarian Myths, Legends, and Folklore by Ronesa Aveela

Light Love Rituals: Bulgarian Myths, Legends, and Folklore by Ronesa Aveela is a book that explores Bulgarian myths, legends, folklore, and mythology. Whether you want to learn a little about their ancient Thracian origins, or you want to experience rituals practiced throughout the year with a fictitious Bulgarian family, or even if you’re only interested in traditional Bulgarian cuisine, this book has a little something for everyone.

Light Love Rituals: Bulgarian Myths, Legends, and Folklore was a very interesting read. I love learning about legends and cultures that are new to me, or are slightly different than what I had previously explored. Bulgarian culture is rich in folklore and traditions surviving since the days of the ancient Thracians. As pagan and Christian religions collided, many celebrations merged into one. This book helps readers discover and explore the details of these unique festivals while keeping it interesting for readers of all ages. The book is divided into sections for each of the four seasons with activities and a short quiz for each. It was an interesting and engaging read that would appeal to many.


Light Love Rituals: Bulgarian Myths, Legends, and Folklore is a solid reference and research source for those interested in different cultures, particularly the development of Bulgarian rituals and recipes.
