This beautiful song is from the 2005 movie Joyeux Noel. A wonderful movie, but I needed lots of kleenex:)
I have never seen that movie!
I've seen a different movie about this amazing event, so I am very pleased you posted this particular clip from one I haven't seen. It is just beautiful and touching.
Great idea! I love cranberries in my salad. Be good in yogurt too.
Lisa-it's good, but so bittersweet.Mary-I'll have to get the name of that other movie from you:) What a moving story, isn't it:)Ms. G-Thanks! Yogurt is a great idea-I would love that! And happy anniversary to your parents!
Watching Downton Abbey has opened my eyes a bit more to the horror that was WW1. Since I focus so much on WW2, I tend to forget the first war (though really, how can you since the first directly led to the second). But I can't imagine trench warfare. I just can't. What they went through on both sides was simply awful. But for a moment, there was peace...
I'd never heard of this event, and have not seen the movie. But what a moment of beautiful peace, which as wonderful as it is, in a certain way is sad too. Knowing that it's fleeting.
Melissa and Joanne-it strikes me as so sad that these soldiers didn't want to fight each other-but wanted to become friends. They were punished for what happened that night, for failing to treat each other as the enemy.If only we could all get past our differences-whatever they may be- and live in harmony-for more than a few moments.
This event has always seemed so terribly sad because it was fleeting and then everything went back to the way it was before. There was a glimpse of hope, but then it was over. The horrors of trench warfare are unspeakable.thank you for sharing Valerie!
Well said, Crystal:) Very sad indeed.
This is just beautiful. But you're right, kleenex was definitely needed.
Hugs Kim:) Your comments are like rays of sunshine:)
Have you seen the movie War Horse? This clip made me think of it.
