  • Description

    Titles read: "Bless this House! An Old Tyrollean Custom."

    Tyrol, Austria.

    Various shots of the custom of blessing houses in the Tyrol. Three men, dressed as the three wise men (one is in black face as Balthasar), go from house to house on January 6th (Twelfth Night) and are given food and drink by the occupants. They then go into the house, accompanied by the family, and wave incense around from a kind of frying pan, blessing the house for the year.

    Note: visuals cut out a few seconds before the end of the story; soundtrack continues. Section at the end has been removed due to decomposition.
