Matthias Raab, "der Kalendermacher," Died Suddenly

Many of you have been enjoying the Oberbaierische Festtäg- und Alte Bräuch- Kalender for some or all of the last almost 30 years of its publication. You may not know that the beautiful large format calendar is the inspiration of a great couple, Matthias “Hias” and Brigitte Raab.
