The world's most famous Christmas song, Silent Night, comes to us from Austria. It was first performed on Christmas Eve 1818 at St. Nikola Church in the village of Oberndorf. This beautiful carol is now sung around the world in over 300 languages and dialects.

The legend says that a hungry mouse damaged the organ bellows a few days before Christmas. And that in just a few hours time, Josef Mohr (priest) and his friend Franz Gruber (organist) produced the song for just two voices and guitar.

Right after the beginning of the war in 1914, an amazing spectacle took place. On Christmas Eve soldiers placed Christmas trees on the upper edges of the trenches as a sign of peace. Fighters then laid down their weapons and sang Silent Night on both sides of the front.
