The Christmas Truce – 1914

On Christmas Day, 1914, in the first year of World
War I, German, British, and French soldiers
disobeyed their superiors and fraternized with “the
enemy” along two-thirds of the Western Front. German
troops held Christmas trees up out of the trenches
with signs, “Merry Christmas.” “You no shoot, we no
shoot.”

*** end quote ***

Which is most interesting. Do you suppose we can have peace among men of good will by just doing it?

I also liked this snip:

<begin snip>

My name is Francis Tolliver, in Liverpool I dwell
Each Christmas come since World War I, I’ve learned its lessons well
That the ones who call the shots won’t be among the dead and lame
And on each end of the rifle we’re the same

<end snip>

Ain’t that the truth? The politicians that decide our fates live high on the hog for selling us down the river.

Where are the George Washingtons, the Jeffersons, and the dollar a year men?
