A song is celebrated: 200 years of "Silent Night"
On 24 December 1818, Joseph Mohr and Franz Xaver Gruber sang the song
"Silent Night" in Oberndorf near Salzburg for the first time. The poem was
written by Mohr, a young pastor from Salzburg, and the melody was
composed by the teacher and organist Gruber from Upper Austria. Two
hundred years later, the song is sung by around two billion people in over
300 languages and dialects around the world. "Silent Night" is a UNESCO
Intangible Cultural Heritage and world peace song, international cultural
asset and musical legacy. The big anniversary is duly celebrated in the 13
Silent Night locations in SalzburgerLand, Tirol and Upper Austria, with new
museum openings, special exhibitions in Salzburg and Linz, a new stage play
and numerous events. Guests from all over the world can enjoy a genuine,
authentic holiday experience on the traces of "Silent Night".
“Silent Night” as a message of peace
The Christmas song has been reaffirming people’s hope for peace in the
world for years. 
In its hometown of Salzburg, “Silent Night” only became widespread after
1866 as a result of its inclusion in a church songbook. In the rest of Europe
and the United States, however, it had already gained popularity thanks to the
travelling and singing Rainer and Strasser families from the Zillertal valley.
Since its inception, the song has been interpreted as a hopeful message about
the human condition. Its status as a world peace song was reaffirmed by its
declaration as an intangible cultural heritage by UNESCO in 2011. During the
two world wars of the 20th century, the unifying power of the song became
especially apparent.  

“Silent Night” in the trenches
Christmas 1914: Around five months after the beginning World War I, something occurs on that Western Front — where over a million soldiers had already died or been wounded — that would become known as an unlikely pacifist and fraternal miracle between thousands of soldiers of different nations. On 24 December, Christmas Eve, the trenches fall quiet. Several soldiers place small, illuminated Christmas trees on the upper edge of their trench — as a sign of peace. On both sides of the approximately 50-kilometre-long front in Flanders, the combatants collectively put down their rifles and helmets and sing their domestic Christmas songs. “Silent Night” is also heard — and sung in various mother tongues. The peaceful, solidary Christmas celebration in the middle of the war is treated as a state of emergency. Fraternisation was subsequently prohibited and made punishable by death.
