19th Card for Christmas 2010

Peace of Christmas

In past times people took the Peace of Christmas quite seriously. In old Norway the Peace of Christmas began on St. Thomas’s Day, December 21. So strong was the desire for harmony that appointed guards roved the towns to insure that peace reigned throughout the season. The penalties for violent crimes doubled during this period, adding extra incentive to comply with the seasonal declaration of peace.
