The Christmas Truce of 1914 was a ceasefire on the western-front between German, French, and British troop on Christmas Eve in December 1914. Both sides informally agreed to stop fighting for a few hours and joined together for food, carols, and companionship. The 4th Annual Peace Carol honors this moment in world history and encourages peace throughout our community.
