I wish everyone who is celebrating, a really great Christmas, with lots of what you wish most for, to fill your day:)



In 1914 during the First World War, the French, Scots, and Germans, agreed to a truce along a small portion of the Western Front to celebrate Christmas. When I saw this video, I was struck by what it must have taken for these men to do this. I wish the same thing could happen today. I know it is highly unlikely, but if only...I posted this last year, but this year we seem to be in even more need of peace and love. If some in power, one in particular, have their way we are heading for not just unrest, but war with more horror. This is just my small way of saying that if these men in 1914 could do what they did surely we can do the same or even better.

Merry Christmas to you! What a beautiful glittery card.

We have to stay positive. It's hard to do at times.

This year seems to have been worse than usual, so many people suffering in ways that are unimaginable, but as you say we have to stay positive, and do anything we can to change what this world is becoming.

That's one of TBG's favorites. It is so touching and reminds us that we are all the same. War is such a waste. Merry Christmas!

I think I am going to post this each year until we have some humanity and peace in this world, this last year has been terrible.

Thank you. I was just saying above that I think I will be posting this each year until we change this world, this has been the worst year for inhumanity and pure suffering for a long time.

this has been the worst year for inhumanity and pure suffering for a long time.

Yes it has. I'm trying hard not to be a pessimist but I suspect from now on each year is going to worse than the previous one.

I would like to think that would not be the case, but I fear you may well be correct, it is sad to think it may be so.
