It will be cold and snowing here for the next couple of days. Just the setting to watch this touching video. It is a recreation of the bitter-sweet moment during Christian Eve, 1914 when British, German, and French troops all spontaneously declared a ceasefire for the evening. Beautifully done.



Taken from the 2005 French film Joyeux Noel.

There is a fascinating WIki article on the many (not just one) examples of such ""unofficial" Christmas ceasefires during World War I.
