The Twelve Days of Christmas, Bavarian-style (3)

Stille Nacht, Heilige NachtOn the third day of Christmas my Bavarian friend gave to me: three Christmas carols.

In Bavaria, carols remain a large part of Christmas. Though most people in Munich are familiar with ‘Rudolph’ and ‘Frosty’, they tend to stick a bit closer to more traditional songs like ‘Oh Tannenbaum (Oh Christmas Tree)’, ‘Stille Nacht (Silent Night)’ and the ever-present ‘Eva Marie’.
