One night of peace on earth…
On December 24, 1914, a miracle of sorts took place on a field in Belgium. It happened just five months after the outbreak of World War I , and on that bitter cold night, men who were foes in battle became gentlemen who refused to fight.
Perhaps this legacy might be repeated and become long lasting in our lifetimes.
This is the story of the Christmas Truce of 1914. It is something to think about during these long, dark nights of winter.
