VIDEO / Christmas Eve Truce - World War One December 1914 / "Joyeux Noel" (2005)

Joyeux Noël (Merry Christmas) Movie Poster - 2005


 Aleksandra's Note: Regardless of whatever "myth" may surround the "Christmas Truce" between enemies on the Western Front on that now legendary Christmas Eve in December of 1914 during World War One, the story is based on actual events and gives hope and inspiration in the power of peace over war. Although this particular event does not involve the Serbians who were on the Allied side in WWI, the message speaks to all sides in that terrible war that was supposed to "end all wars".

The "Christmas Truce" was just a moment in time. The war that was supposed to be over, according to German predictions, by December of 1914, would go on another four long years, to become the most destructive war mankind had ever known up to that point in history.

Merry Christmas and may mankind one day truly know "Peace on Earth".

Sincerely,
Aleksandra Rebic
