Artists Fritz Dietl, Richard Müller, Wenzel Hablik, Josef Strejc, E. Hradetzky and Rudolf Hancke created this booklet in collaboration

It was most likely meant only for themselves or perhaps for a closest circle of friends. Our copy comes from the personal property of Josef Strejc. Despite intensive research, no other copy is known to us.

The Yule Festival was originally the Germanic winter solstice festival, celebrated on the astronomical date, December 21 ("Jul Moon"), in honor of the rebirth of the sun. In Northern European countries, the Yule Festival takes place at Christmas. There it is still called "Jul", which is reflected in the English "Yule".
