It was 90 years ago today

Around the western world, credit cards are warming down from the Mad Christmas Shop and preparing for the Post-Christmas Sale. For their owners, it may be worth taking some time to remember one past Christmas present beyond the reach of cash.

Ninety years ago, the armies fighting World War I had their first Christmas in the trenches. On the Frelingien-Houplines part of the front line, German and British soldiers met in No-Man's Land for a game of soccer.

Have a very Human Christmas.

Peace, Love and Understanding,
