Silent Night, Holy Night - Stille Nacht

I made this card and the whole time I was remembering one of our Christmas in Germany where my family on Christmas Eve visited the little church, St. Nicholas Church in the small village of Oberndorf, Austria. On December 24, 1818 the Christmas hymn Silent Night was sung in this church for the first time. And now this song is sung in 135 different languages and has over 200 different versions.

This beautiful stamp reminds me so much of the little church where Silent Night was sung for the first time. And all the wonderful memories of those snowy, cold Christmas that we spent in the beautiful country of Germany.

So friends, please allow me to present my card of St. Nicholas Church....
