    Well, its the 100 year anniversary of the Christmas truce on the Western Front during the Great War. It was an unofficial ceasefire, of course, but it also involved the playing of sports, the exchange of items, prisoner swaps, and other fraternization. Sadly, the war went went on for a long time afterwards. Its an interesting date to mark, so I thought I would make note.

    At least a symbol for Peace inbetween their bloody affairs! It was not too easy to congregate for foes whom you or your fellow comrades had been aiming, preparing for knocking out, a few hours ago! A significant number of comrades came out asiding their arms, congregate openly to greet, exchange by forgetting every thing, atleast Heavenly peace have been descended for a few hours there in the battle field, Merry Christmas.
