This made me think of Christmas in WW1. The English and German soldiers climbed out of the trenches and played football together for a day.

"When the Christmas bells sounded in the villages of the Vosges behind the lines ..... something fantastically unmilitary occurred. German and French troops spontaneously made peace and ceased hostilities; they visited each other through disused trench tunnels, and exchanged wine, cognac and cigarettes for Westphalian black bread, biscuits and ham. This suited them so well that they remained good friends even after Christmas was over." -Richard Schirrmann

I read about that. It gave me major feels to know that two opposing sides, fighting in a bloody war, could remember that they are fighting fellow human beings.
