CHRISTMAS IN THE TRENCHES

To start us off...

My favourite Christmas Eve story is about the British and the Germans who were squared off in the trenches in World War ONE*. They paused their snipering on Christmas Eve, and had the HUMANITY to run out and sing together and exchange gifts. True story. A song was written about this by John McCutcheon, and has been performed by several artists. I had an ancient relative who fought in WWI for Scotland. He incurred what was referred to as, "Trench Foot." He later died of pneumonia. (I am not such a big adherent to chanelling. But I do believe I picked up his genes and his temperament - and his looks). Whatever may be god - please bless whatever pain is in this world. Merry Christmas.

*(That is the war that so-called progressive Woodrow Wilson brought us into).

"If only the British and Germans realized it was the greed of their own banking houses and industrialists that had them in the trenches and not some irreconcilable difference amongst themselves…"
