WWI Christmas Scene

Here’s Part 1 of your promised Christmas gift from Gazette665! (Part 2 will follow in a couple days.)

Well, my mom always said don’t watch the commercials on TV (and she’s right), but when a friend sent me this video I knew I had to share. There have been some highly critical comments about this clip being used as a commercial, but I’m asking you to forget that for a moment and see it as a tribute to WWI soldiers and their Christmas 100 years ago. The touching simplicity makes this a historical Christmas clip worth seeing. Enjoy!

It also seemed like a nice way to “finish” our previous posts on WWI this year.

Merry Christmas!

Your Historian,

Miss Sarah

P.S. Your thoughts on this thought-provoking film clip?
