Looking For A Book
#1
Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but a few years ago I had this great book from the library, and now like so many others it's been weeded out, and I can't remember the name. It was a pre-V2 history of how we celebrated the entire Catholic calendar, and was jampacked with info on Holy Days,history, traditions, etc. Pretty sure it was written in the 1950's.

The Liturgical Year by Dom Prosper Guéranger is very good, but it wasn't written in the 1950s. It is pretty much the Summa of the liturgy of the Catholic Church

I found it.  Handbook of Christian Feasts and Customs by Francis X Weiser (1958)

It is certainly a great book.  Just finished it during Lent.  I found mine from Biretta books:

Handbook of Christian Feasts and Customs
