German British Soldiers Christmas 1914

It commemorates the extraordinary events of Christmas Day, 1914, when the guns fell silent and two armies met in no-man’s land, sharing gifts – and even playing football together. Soldiers of Germany and Britain, came out of their trenches to celebrate Christmas together singing and just genuinely sharing laughter together.

It's a very heartwarming scene that can surely make you shed a tear.
