Is the Christmas miracle of World War 1 true ?
Has anyone heard about this ....That in World War 1 while British and French and German troops were fighting a "something" ...a "star" apparently appeared over the battle field and it so awed those fighting that all sides laid down their weapons and prayed and stopped fighting for a while.

Is it just legend or is it true ? Anyone ever hear of this ?
Man's symbiotic connection with the cosmos will be known and there is nothing which can stop that knowing. Because everything we all do everyday helps confirm that truth. It is just that we haven't reached the pinnacle of where it leads. But we will soon enough. We will either live or die with that knowledge. Between Heaven and Earth is us.

Be brave young warriors in truth.

Re: Is the Christmas miracle of World War 1 true ?
There was a christmas miracle but no star was needed.
quote from wikipedia:
The truce began on Christmas Eve, December 24, 1914, when German troops began decorating the area around their trenches in the region of Ypres, Belgium, for Christmas. They began by placing candles on trees, then continued the celebration by singing Christmas carols, most notably Stille Nacht (Silent Night). The British troops in the trenches across from them responded by singing English carols.

The two sides continued by shouting Christmas greetings to each other. Soon thereafter, there were calls for visits across the "No Man's Land" where small gifts were exchanged — whisky, jam, cigars, chocolate, and the like. The artillery in the region fell silent that night. The truce also allowed a breathing spell where recently-fallen soldiers could be brought back behind their lines by burial parties. Proper burials took place as soldiers from both sides mourned the dead together and paid their respects. At one funeral in No Man's Land, soldiers from both sides gathered and read a passage from the 23rd Psalm:

The Lord is my shepherd. I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures. He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul. He leadeth me in the path of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil.

The truce spread to other areas of the lines, and there are many stories of football matches between the opposing forces. The film Joyeux Noël suggests that letters sent home from both British and German soldiers related that the score was 3-2 in favour of the Germans.

In many sectors, the truce lasted through Christmas night, but in some areas, it continued until New Year's Day.

The truce occurred in spite of opposition at higher levels of the military. Earlier in the autumn, a call by Pope Benedict XV for an official truce between the warring governments had been ignored.

British commanders Sir John French and Sir Horace Smith-Dorrien vowed that no such truce would be allowed again.

Yes, it happened.

After the Truce, snipers, on both sides, gave each other's troops "going-home wounds". This meant that they shot off a kneecap, as opposed to the top of a skull.

Great tune.

Shame two top masonic bastards declared that if it ever was to happen again all involved would be shot on sight.

It's probably the most famous example of why we have wars. The men at the front don't want to kill each other, they just have to because the men at the top want them to.

Re: Is the Christmas miracle of World War 1 true ?
One of your problems in verification is you are referencing two separate events. There was a heavenly vision of some sort on November 14, 1915, which had approximately one thousand witnesses on various fronts of the war... Eastern, Western, Southern... Dutch, French, English, German, Russian... and many soldiers lay down their weapons claiming to have various experiences along with the sighting.

The Christmas truce of 1914 was a separate event with no miraculous sighting. And as for locating 'proof', how would the military go about recording such a thing? Shall I prepare your discharge papers or mine?

It was most likely the ordinary, sane guys in the trenches being human and sane whilst their insane, murderous officers were off in their messes celebrating.

For one brief moment of sanity, ordinary guys managed to remind the evil bastards up top that only they are evil bastards.

There was a great, and difficult-to-watch, documentary on the BBC a few years ago called "The Trench".

It portrayed the everyday life of a British infantryman during the 1914-18 conflict.

It was grim as hell.

My paternal Grandfather was a company Sergeant in the Lancashire Fusiliers, and lived through something that I don't even want to think about.

Maybe I did.

Here, in our gunless country of the UK, I seem to have always known about weaponry and tactics.

I have dreams and nightmares in which I'm fighting grim adversaries.

I've never held an M-16 in my hands, but I bet I could operate one, no problem.
