Did you know…..?

That the Romans did mulled wine first? – the roman version of mulled wine was known as conditum paradoxum (“surprise spiced wine”).

That there is a German student song about Feuerzangebowle, called Krambambuli – can you pronounce it?

That the movie is based on a novel – Die Feuerzangenbowle – written by Heinrich Spoerl?

That this novel was so popular that it ultimately led to three movies, the most famous of which was released in 1944?
