Christmas In The Trenches

Like war, Christmas isn't over 'til it's over...

After reposting about the amazing Christmas 'Truce' of 1914, during WW1, I now find pictures and illustrations of the historical event! They were in my favourite "fake news" site, but there also pics in the wikipedia page.

WWI. German troops holding the first-line trench on the river bank. Possibly during the Aisne Offensive, on May 27-June 4th, as part of 1918 German drive when they came within 56 kilometers of Paris. Image Credit: Shutterstock.


Have Americans forgotten about World War One?  This is just one question I hope to address in an upcoming post or two on WW1.

Also, will NASA ever succeed in its efforts to find extraterrestrials who look like Dennis Quaid or James Carville?
