      1. They have underground churches. And yes, the soldiers on the front all sang together. If I remember right it was Silent Night in Russian and Finnish. Would have been surreal under the starlit winter night in the snow. Dad remembered it with tears in his eyes.

      2. I think that was also the carol chosen by the Brits and Germans in WW1. It must have been very moving – yet so strange to connect in such a way then have to return to killing each other afterwards.

        There’s nought so strange as folks, as we say in the UK.
