Vera  Griebert-Schröder, Franziska  Muri - Of the Magic of the 12 Days from Christmas to Epiphany


Old customs newly interpreted – typical rituals of the 12 days following Christmas

This is a mysterious time: the twelve days between Christmas and Epiphany, or Three Kings Day (called the “Raw Nights” in Germany). This period serves to provide a time of retrospection on the past year and preparation for the new one. According to old folk belief, this time is especially good for oracles, and many customs and stories are associated with this time.

In their lovingly illustrated book of top-quality design, Vera Griebert-Schröder and Franziska Muri provide many practical tips for making use of this magical time, including how the old customs can be experienced in a new and personal way. With many contemporary exercises, rituals, oracles, and remarkable tales, the authors offer a wonderful thematic guide for a creative use of the time between the years.

Numerous exercises, oracles, and ritual for using the time for intensive personal development.
