Bruce Bairnsfather - LIFE STORIES
 
 
12/25/1914     Merry Christmas, 1914
On this day in 1914, the "Christmas Truce" of WWI, tentatively and spontaneously begun the previous evening at many places along the Front, held. The "outbreak of peace" has been commemorated by play and poem, but nothing captures its spirit as well as the first-person accounts. These include those of the Khaki Chums who reenacted the event in 1999.
