Christmas Cards

Silent night holy night. All is calm all is bright, round yon virgin mother and child, holy infant so tender and mild, sleep in heavenly peace
This tradional carol was originally written in German by Father Josef Mohr. I understand the slow melody that is sung today is different to the original that was more upbeat. It was first performed 191 years ago in Austria. I love this beautiful carol and it has been translated into many different languages. I would like to know if the readers of my blog who are from many different countries sing this. A happy and holy Christmas to you all.
The card is a paper collage.
