Today we welcome the newest member of the Library of Congress blogosphere: Folklife Today, a new blog produced by the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.
AFC has one of the largest archives in the world relating to traditional folk culture. The center’s team of bloggers will be posting regularly with interesting information about its collections and services and other folklore and folklife topics of interest.
With a look at one of America’s favorite holidays, Folklife Today debuts with its first post on the history and folklore of Halloween.
Folklife Today joins this blog, as well as others from the Library of Congress, including our Music Division and our Science, Technology and Business Division. You can access all of the Library’s blogs here.
