DowneastBlog wishes its readers of good will a Merry Christmas!

And this year marks the bicentennial of the most famous of Christmas carols, Silent Night:

Composed in 1818 by Franz Xaver Gruber, a schoolmaster from Arnsdorf in Austria's Salzburger region. The lyrics are from the hand of Father Joseph Mohr, a priest in the nearby village of Oberndorf.
