Reader's note

The wonderfully patterned title can take pride of place within any vintage library. A truly fascinating title that examines English culture. The introduction begins - The festivals of the English people acknowledge their ancestry. One is more pagan in character, another more Christian, but there are a few, if we inspect them closely enough, which are not seen to be both. There is hardly a popular feast of the Church that is not remembered in customs older than the church. There is hardly a carnival of the primitive world that has not been tinged with Christian meaning. This interpretation of old and new is not just confined to modern England, it can be seen in many countries throughout the world.
