Week 22 The Christmas Day Truce! By Calum

It was Christmas day and the war had been going on for a few months now. Everyone felt miserable and sad because their families were back home. Suddenly the Germans emerged waving a white flag. We decided to go towards the Germans and see what they were doing.

Surprisingly we all decided to have a truce. Later on that day one of the British soldiers got a ball and we had a game of soccer. It was Britain against Germany but in a game of soccer. The joy on everyone’s face was delightful and the sound of laughter was wonderful. For a few hours, everyone forgot about the war and we all became good friends. The game ended 5-3 with the British winning but that didn’t really matter.

But then the time came and we all had to go back. It was the most fun everyone had had since the war started.

  8. Hi Calum,
    I loved your story,
    The sad thing about the Christmas Truce was that at the end everyone had to go back to war again.
    You definitely deserved the showcase. Keep up the good work.
    I wonder if the rules back then were different to now in soccer. I also wonder what they used for goalposts.

  17. I have to say that I LOVE your story this week Calum – that truce during World War I is so famous and it was an inspired decision to base your story in that time this week. How wonderful that everyone forgot about way and fighting for those few hours. Keep up the excellent writing!

  18. Well done Calum.
    I love how you used this week’s prompt.
    What relief those few hours must have given the soldiers from the horrors of war!
    Super work

  19. Hi Calum
    I always think that you need a really strong image when you are writing so that you can paint that picture for your reader and, by choosing a well known event to write about, you have been very successful at this. It was refreshing to read about something happy and the event you write about must have been an incredible experience for those involved; the break from the horrific fighting.
