Interesting note on a song I love

One of my favorite Christmas songs, 'Do You Hear What I Hear?': The Story Behind the Song A bit different inspiration than I had imagined, but it is what it is, an inspiring song with a profound message.
Their masterpiece, however, is “Do You Hear What I Hear?” Many people mistakenly assume this Christmas classic has been around for years and that it is of European origin. But it was written in 1962 during the Cuban Missile Crisis as a powerful plea for peace by a man who had experienced the horrors of war.
