Silent Night is such as simple carol. Originally composed in German, the song was designed to be accompanied by a guitar because the church for which it was written had mice destroy their organ and it would not be repaired in time for the Christmas services. And from what must have been a very simple service came a song that spread round the world. It's my mother's favorite carol and her birthday is in a couple of days, so I'm posting this one for her. Happy birthday, Mom!
