THE WORLD WAR 1 CHRISTMAS TRUCE 1914



Dear Readers,

last year it was the 100th anniversary of the wonderful "World War 1 Christmas Truce".
And I could bite my ass that I forgot. But this year I saw a documentary called "WW1 In Colours" from the BBC and it really touched me.
So this year's post is about the miracle that happened 101 years ago when soldiers refused to fight and sang corals instead and played soccer together in no-man's land between the trenches in Belgium and France.

Read more here...

I am not very religious but I believe in the good in man - when it really comes to the Point.




THE FARM's "All Together Now" from 1991 is about this night, when the decided not to fight.

Remember boy that your forefathers died
Lost in millions for a country's pride
They never mention the trenches of Belgium
When they stopped fighting and they were one
 
A spirit stronger than war was working that night
December 1914 cold, clear and bright
Countries' borders were right out of sight
They joined together and decided not to fight
 
All together now
All together now
All together now
In no man's land, together
 
The same old story again
All those tears shed in vain
Nothing learnt and nothing gained
Only hope remains
 
All together now
All together now
All together now
In no man's land, together
 
The boys had their say, they said no
Stop the slaughter and let's go home
Let's go, let's go, let's go, let's go, let's go
The boys had their say, they said no
Stop the slaughter and let's go home
Let's go, let's go, let's go, let's go home
 
All together now
All together now
All together now
In no man's land, together
 
 
I wish you a peaceful time with your loved ones wherever you are!
Take care!
And merry Christmas!
 
Yours, the monomod
