I’d heard this story my whole life from my Dad, and it’s my favorite Christmas song because of it. When he was in parochial school, he had to learn it in German and taught it to me. So I sing one verse in German, one in Swedish to honor both sets of my ancestors. I remember my grandma telling me I roll my r’s perfectly.

I had read something before about this. It must of been something to hear two million voices sing this, it was estimated that was how many troops were involved in this.
