Reprints the 1912 study of the origins, evolution, and meaning of Christmas rituals and practices of many nations, including caroling, Christmas drama, the manger, the Christmas tree, the Yule log, and the twelve days.
This volume tries to show how Christmas is or has been kept in various lands and ages, and to trace as far as possible the origin of the pagan elements that have mingled with the Church's feast of the Nativity. It is full of bits of little-known Christmas lore and its aim is to build a rough outline map of the field of Christmas customs, and to bring together materials hitherto scattered through a multitude of volumes in various languages.
Photographs and engravings of scenes from Christmases past and selections by Dickens, Beerbohm, Auden, and others augment the author's witty explanations of the origins of Christmas customs and the ways in which they have changed through the years
This handy booklet sets out the rich heritage of customs long practised by Catholics during the seasons of Advent and Christmas. The Church makes sense of the natural seasons of the year through her own liturgical seasons. Advent's four weeks, cribbing, St Nicholas, carols, the 12 days of Christmas, Candlemas, St Lucy and Boxing Day are just some of the rich traditions explained here - a fine antidote to the prospect of gluttony and materialism frequently on offer at the year's end.
Traces the culture, legends, and symbolism of traditional Christmas foliage, including holly, ivy, mistletoe, rosemary, and yule logs.
