I bought this book for my research and it was such a delight to read. The text talks about the customs of the Welsh people, both calendrical and social.
It has five chapters about the Christmas season, Candlemas and the moveable feasts, May and Midsummer, the harvest and winter eve, and finally birth, marriage and death.
I learned a lot from this book but what I loved most about it was how the author presented the material. You know what was considered a “new” custom and what might have been a remanent of ancient times. Highly recommended.
