In 1914 the Pope asked the warring factions to observe a truce on Christmas Day. Of course the powers that be refused. The troops in the field took it upon themselves to celebrate Christmas. The German forces started this event by leaving their trenches singing Christmas carols and lighting candles. Before long the Allied forces joined in. A soccer match was arranged as well. The troops did this in 1914 & 1915. In 1916 the edict came down that anyone participating in an event of this kind would be subject to very severe penalties which could include charges of treason which carried the death penalty.
