Yesterday we shot the key scene of the traditional story! Joseph Mohr and Franz Xaver Gruber composing Silent Night. The song which nowadays is considered to be the spirit of christmas all over the world.
The favorite christmas carol of 2.5 billion people in the world, which not only made it out of its little home in 1818, but also caused the famous christmas truce on the Belgian front between german and british troops in 1914.
Since then the song is not only a song for humbleness but most importantly a song for peace.
