12 Days of Christmas Music That Doesn’t Suck, 2014 Edition (Day 10)

It’s the middle of the night on Christmas Eve in a month that’s been unnaturally busy and hectic for my family. I’ve just finished wrapping gifts. The house is quiet around me.

It’s the centennial anniversary of a spontaneous trench truce, and some reports say that this song was sung and shared between British and German soldiers as they paused from slaughtering each other in World War I. It’s pretty.

 

 

Sweet dreams.
