“When the whole world was at peace...”

As this is posted, we are decorating the tree at Chez Alexandre. This would be a suitable occasion to remind our loving public about the true meaning of this night, and the power of the Christ Child over the destiny of humanity. To wit, we present this excerpt from Joyeux Noël, a dramatization of the famous "Christmas Truce" of 1914, in the trenches of the First World War.

I would defy any multi-cultural, politically-correct, pseudo-intellectual twit to portray a holiday celebration, that has ever had this effect on the hearts of men. Christus vincit, Christus regnat, Christus imperat!

Did you know Father would refer to this in his sermon before you posted it? Is there a coincidence here?

The good Father and I were not aware of the others' knowledge of this event, or of the song he mentioned, which is entitled "Christmas in the Trenches," and was written and first recorded, not by Garth Brooks, but by John McCutcheon. I think.
