Have you ever heard of the Declaration of Christmas Peace? It originates from Finland in the early 1300s also known as the Dark ages. The declaration is so popular that nowadays it is broadcast worldwide. Early settlers probably brought it over with them and read it with their family or friends to remind themselves of what Christmas is really about.

Tomorrow, God willing, is the graceful celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior; and thus is declared a peaceful Christmas time to all, by advising devotion and to behave otherwise quietly and peacefully,
because he who breaks this peace and violates the peace of Christmas by any illegal or improper behavior shall under aggravating circumstances be guilty and punished according to what the law and statutes prescribe for each and every offence separately.
