The Christmas Truce

The Christmas Truce was an event when the German and British celebrated Christmas together while fighting a war. They vowd not to shoot until midnight that Christmas night so for one day both German and British soldiers did not have to worry about getting shot at. Both sides went out to no mans land where they sang, told stories, exchanged gifts, and even decorated some trees to make it look like Christmas. While out there the had a ceremony and buried all of the dead soldiers in honor of there lives.
