Er....don't know what a 'senior moment' is, I'm afraid! But I can confirm I was having a Queen moment (i.e. thinking about the aging rocker group Queen - you know, Freddy Mercury, Roger Taylor etc) as the author's name is Brian *Day* not Brian *May* (who was the big-haired guitarist, I think, from the group). It's word association, or some form of Turet's syndrome (sp?), or something like that.
I also got the title slightly wrong - it's Chronicles of Celtic Folk Customs (which are the same as traditions but obviously different words) and the subtitle is 'A Day-to-Day Guide to Folk Traditions'. But the contents are still the same.
