Fact of the Day: Christmas Peace

While World War I saw much carnage, there was a time of peace between some troops. During Christmas week, some British and German troops slowly began a holiday truce. They sung Christmas carols to each other, gave holiday greetings, and gave what little they had as Christmas gifts.
