Daily Prompt-Miraculous

Miraculous

~~~~~

At Christmas 1914, with both sides singing hymns and carols,

it was indeed a miracle that so much carnage was halted,

even for a short time…

to exchange Christmas greetings, gifts and

for an impromptu game of soccer.

My sons say I should call it Football.

 

While the 1914 Christmas Truce was not observed

all along the Western Front it has been

written into folklore in my lifetime.

We visited the site of this miracle

near Prowse Point Military Cemetery,

in Belgium.

Merry Christmas

and a safe and prosperous

Near Year

to all.
