It is no wonder that over time all kinds of stories emerged concerning the people, places and circumstances relating to the song — many of which were quite fanciful. The magical aspect of fables and legends is the possibility that they do, in fact, contain a small kernel of truth, which makes speculation even more tantalising. Some legends — such as that of the hungry mouse that munched on the Oberndorf organ — still persist.
Perhaps because they are simply nice stories? Others, however, are based on simple ignorance. There continues to be much research conducted into the genesis and dissemination of the song, and there is always new information coming to light. Were mice to blame for the defective organ? But why was the song arranged for two solo voices and choir accompanied by guitar? The imaginative explanation is the story about the mouse. The poor creature was supposedly so hungry that it chewed through the bellows of the Oberndorf church organ.
Which is why the instrument was unplayable on Christmas Eve and a guitar had to be substituted. False: The truth is that the organ was indeed playable but in need of repair.

The following year the organ builder Carl Mauracher came to Oberndorf from the Zillertal to inspect the instrument. Joseph Mohr and Franz Xaver Gruber could also have decided ahead of time to arrange the song to be sung with guitar accompaniment because they wanted to sing it directly in front of the nativity scene immediately following the church service. Even people who are concerned with traditional customs do not always agree.
