Christmas Truce Of 1914

On Christmas Eve of 1914, deep in the trenches of the western front, christmas carols could be heard emerging from the holes. On Christmas morning, the first German soldier arose from the trench and approached "No Man's Land". At first the Bristish were concerned it was a trick, but as more unarmed soldiers came out, they relaxed. The Germans began shouting "merry christmas" as they approached the hesitant British soldiers. The truce had begun, though it would only last a day, the enimies sharred cigars, cigarettes, pudding, and caroled all day. The two teams composed a friendly game of soccer, until the night emerged, and the day was over. The night ended and the war continued the next day.
