Christmas Carols # 23

Silent Night, the famous German song, is said to be the most common and most beloved Christmas Hymn.
In the early seventies a new Norwegian Christmas tradition was founded. The radio, the NRK, played Mahalia Jackson's version of this beautiful Hymn on the late night show. Since then, no "Little Christmas Eve" without Mahalia Jackson. She's become as important as the Christmas tree, she belongs in our Christmas hearts.
