Christmas in the Trenches

On December 24, , a Christmas carol with a beautiful melody and words of peace—one created by an Austrian priest and a headmaster—was first performed in the Church of St. Nicholas in Oberndorf, Austria. I thought having a bilingual Grandmother was one of the coolest things in the world. During a concert in folksinger John McCutcheon heard a story that seized his imagination. McCutcheon adds details that children need to the text, and Sorensen provides panoramic views of the battlefield and trenches.

After a flag of truce, the men exchange gifts and commodities and then head back to wait for the next day of war.

Christmas in the Trenches

British forces are lined up in trenches on one side of a battlefield in occupied France; German forces on the other. A silent, sparkling night falls. Suddenly, says the author, a lone, clear voice is heard, singing a Christmas carol in German. Gradually, the two armies creep towards each other, to share holiday cheer. They exchange chocolates, show photos of their families, make music, and play a moonlit game of soccer. He composed Christmas in the Trenches originally as a song.
