The Christmas Truce of 1914

Soldiers from both sides exchange cheerful conversationWhoever said miracles don’t happen on Christmas needs to hear this story. During the cold winter in France during World War I there was a ceasefire between German and British forces. Soldiers from each side came out and spread the cheer of Christmas with food, drink, and even traded prisoners of war. This was quite remarkable to me. Imagine fighting a war and putting everything aside to celebrate with the enemy. The Christmas truce of 1914 is remembered for two sides celebrating the holiday season.
