In 1914, at the Western front, out of the violence comes a silence, then a song. A German soldier steps into No Man’s Land singing “Stille Nacht.” Thus begins an extraordinary night of camaraderie, music, and peace. A remarkable true experience, told in the words and songs of the men who lived it. We are thrilled to make this special story an annual Inland Northwest Tradition.
