When it was first published in 1986 A Book of Feasts and Seasons was the first popular attempt to recapture the lost traditions surrounding our major feasts and festivals. Since then it has gone through many printings, and has become a well loved source book all over the world. For every occasion of the Christian Year - from the traditional celebration of Michaelmas and Martinmas to making an Advent Wreath, from wassailing to the full story of St Wenceslaus - A Book of Feasts and Seasons remains an essential part of the family library. In today's fast moving world it gets harder and harder for people to keep in touch with their Christian history and customs. This book allows families, schools and church groups to do just that, and to have fun while doing it. Joanna Bogle is a well-known Catholic journalist and broadcaster. She often appears on the television station EWTN.
