The WWI Christmas Truce

Refuge at Highland HallHi Friends, When I was researching the events of World War One for my novel, A Refuge at Highland Hall, I read about a spontaneous truce that began on Christmas Eve and carried through to Christmas Day 1914, only a few months after the war started. It’s interesting to consider how the meaning of Christmas could inspire these men to put down their guns and set their differences aside even for a short time. Take a look at this video about what happened that Christmas on the front line. And below that is another three-minute video about the history of this event. Both are inspiring and worth watching!

Whatever struggles you’re facing this holiday season, I hope you’ll allow God’s peace to calm and comfort your heart. As you celebrate with family and friends may the true meaning of Christmas lift your spirit and draw you closer to Him!
