Christmas Story - A Christmas Truce
Here´s a direct link to a page that has an ESL activity about a true Christmas story that warms my heart every time I hear it told. The link is refreshed about once a week, so you need to download it ASAP and not wait.


Merry Christmas

New Zealand

Isn´t it the most incredible story.  Weren´t canadian troops part of the allies alongside new Zealand and Australians?  Of course the song - Snoopy´s Christmas refers to the truce - with the German ´red baron´ making overtures of peace.

It is a shame the generals were allowed to prevail, it seems like the troops all new what they were doing!

I discussed this topic and song with my students and they told me about a famous football match between the Chileans and the Argentinians on the eve of what nearly became a war between the two countries.  Apparently this occurred shortly before the Falklands war with England during the erm 1980´s or late 70´s??

Yes, they were. Over 1 million Canadian troops helped out... which was a fair amount considering Canada only had a population of about 11-12 million people...
