This Day in History Entry #307

A carol for times that lack light
That can render a twelfth month’s eve bright
Song of peace and of grace
In a gentle babe’s face
Shocking silent those gathered that night

Event: “Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht” (Eng: “Silent Night”) is performed for the first time
Year: 1818
