Advent & Christmas: Catholic Customs and Traditions
|Publisher: Catholic Truth Society UK||Pages: 48|
|Binding: A6 Paperback|
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.
