Available in PDF, epub, and Kindle ebook. This book has 201 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1910.
Contains the origins of customs and superstitions such as Shrove Tuesday; Halloween; Candlemas Day; Yule Logs; All Fools' Day; The Engagement Ring; Bridesmaids and Best Man; Christening Customs; Dreams; Witchcraft; Crystal Gazing; Looking-Glass Omens; Sneezing; Vampires; Theatre Superstitions; Knife Superstitions, and many, many more. Each chapter is quite small but manages to give a clear account of the custom it's talking about.
