Excerpt from The Liturgical Year, Vol. 1: Christmas WE apply the name of Christmas to the forty days, which begin with the Nativity of our Lord, Decem ber 25th, and end with the Purification of the Blessed Virgin, February 2ud. It 1s aperiod, which forms a distinct portion of the Liturgical Year, as distinct, by its own special Spirit, from every other, as are Advent, Lent, Easter, or Pentecost. One same Mystery 1s celebrated and kept in view during the Whole forty days. Neither the Feasts of the Saints, which so abound during this Season, nor the Time of Septuagesima, with its mournful Purple, which often begins before Christmastide is over - seem able to distract our Holy Mother the Church, from the 1m mense joy, of which she received the good tidings from the Angels,1 on that glorious Night, for which the world had been longing four thousand years. The Faithful will remember, that the Liturgy com memorates this long expectation, by the four peni tential weeks of Advent.
