The Christmas Truce
The Special Day
The special day is a day that both sides made up and they had fun with each other. when they had fun they also had a burial ceremony, they'd caroled, wished each other a merry christmas/played soccer, lit candles, and exchanged gifts. soccer is actually football but thats what they'd called it back then. after that i don't think they fought ever again. All the events happened really early in the morning and how it started well a german soldier was standing there and wanted to talk to the other side so one of the people from the other side thought they wanted to fight or they were going to shoot them, but that didn't happen they wanted to make up. so they did and they went out and started doing stuff together.
when they caroled they sang christmas songs maybe to each other or to the other people around.
wished each other merry christmas/played soccer
before both sides played soccer they exchanged gifts, then they all played soccer and the teams played against each other.
