The text is read from the red cloth. Perhaps ten thousand people are listening.
The text is read on Christmas Eve at noon.
Tomorrow, God willing,
is the graceful celebration of the birth of our Lord and Saviour;
and a general Christmas peace is hereby declared, by advising
everyone to celebrate it with appropriate reverence
and to behave otherwise quietly and peacefully,
for he who breaks this peace and violates the peace of Christmas by any
illegal or improper behaviour shall under aggravating circumstances
be guilty and punished according to what the law and statutes prescribe
for each and every offence separately.
Finally, a joyous Christmas feast is wished to all inhabitants of the city.
