Christmas is a holiday packed full of its own folklore involving playful spirits and fantastical creatures: some benevolent, others with a darker purpose. What if these characters from Christmas folklore were real and had to work together to give the Christmas spirit back to the world in order to keep themselves from vanishing from human memory?
Eliza Smith is a 30-year-old teacher from Minnesota who has become disenchanted with everything to do with Christmas and unwittingly becomes the first project for the spirits. Led by Elf That Helps™, the Christmas spirits select Julbok (the yule goat) for the task of helping Eliza recapture the true spirit of Christmas. When their worlds collide, Eliza must contend with the mysterious supernatural goat in addition to her regular life while navigating the chaos of the holidays.
Drawing inspiration from Christmas folklore, Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, and other favorite Christmas tales, Jul! is a playful story that serves as a reminder that kindness is always the answer.
