This was, of course, World War I. But who could have guessed that on December 25 the troops would openly defy their commanding officers by stopping the fighting and having a spontaneous celebration of Christmas with their "enemies"?
In what can only be described as a miracle, this beautiful and heartrending narrative will remind everyone how brotherhood and love for one another reach far beyond the boundaries of war and politics.
