http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christmas_truce#Christmas_Truce_Letter

It’s a letter from a British soldier which he wrote on the Christmas day in 1914 while being at the front lines in World War I. Both armies ceased to fire on that day, and soldiers from both sides met. The author says that this is “the most memorable Christmas I’ve ever spent”.
