its really hard to kill your enemy once you've shared champagne with them right?
It was a truce between men and not governments, probably why it worked.
"No one will criticize us for laying down our rifles for Christmas Eve"
France: It’s Nestor
Interestingly, or at least to me, when the Scottish and German men start singing together after getting out of the trench, they are singing the tune to "O Come all ye Faithful". However, unlike the previous number, "Silent Night", the German man is singing in Latin, instead of German. This is because Latin was still considered a universal language, and central to Christianity. When he starts singing in Latin, he is symbolically putting all of their enmity aside.
It has been 105 years now. 105.
The look on the German actor's face when he realized his enemy was playing for him... that got me.

There are so MANY nods to cultural similarities here. Does anyone notice the event at
This is such a great scene because this is, humanity. Nobody wants to be there, they don't want this. In a war. Everyone just wants to go home.
Puts up a Christmas tree
Cats are worse than politicians at playing both sides.
This de-christianized century will not be able to understand why the truce happened.
Imagine if they just all decided “yea screw this war”, packed up their bags and all went home in a truce.

Girls bathroom: I hate her so much, she's no longer my bff!
To those who don't like bagpipes: I'm Scottish, they resonate in my soul. I don't expect you to understand but that's how it is.
This is how people are when you remove government politics.
Fun fact: after this they had to get rid of the men in the trenches because they didn't want to fight each other.
When the German singer picked up the tree and started crossing no-man's-land with the Scottish bag pipes playing, I got chills and started to cry. Such a well-done scene.
