25/12/1914

The ‘pitch’ was full of holes. None of the players cared. About that or the biting cold, rain, or mud.

Time stopped for two white flags and one football.

Caroling, laughter, and merriment replaced the sounds of screaming, rifles, and mortars.

Orders be damned today.

It was Christmas, after all.
