2018 Marks the 200th Year Anniversary of Silent Night
“Silent Night,” arguably one of the most popular and beloved of Christmas carols, was written by a young priest, Father Joseph Mohr. He brought the lyrics to his town’s local schoolmaster and organist Xaver Franz Gruber and asked him to compose a melody and guitar accompaniment for the Christmas Eve Mass at his parish church in Obendorf, Austria. The carol was first performed in 1818.
With over 30 million in sales, Bing Crosby’s “Silent Night” is the third best selling single of all time, after Crosby’s “White Christmas” (50 million) and Elton John’s “Candle in the Wind” (33 million).

It is NOT nice out there today. Winter doesn’t begin until Friday, but it sure feels wintery today.
From my buddy Rub in Florida…
Tomorrow, Wednesday Dec 19, a ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at Stage Fort Park for the newly installed Essex Coastal Scenic Byway Kiosk. There are nine of these along the Essex Coastal Scenic Byway and this is the last of the ribbon cutting ceremonies. All are invited to attend the ceremony later this morning. I think it looks pretty snazzy at Stage Fort Park (and PS..it’s also informational!)
