In this clip we take a look at a wonderful incident that occurred in 1914. It was World War 1 and the men from two different countries put down their guns for one night of peace and celebrated Christmas.

This was made into a wonderful movie and here we see the street art interpretation. The street art is from London and Berlin. The war story featured soldiers from France, Scotland, and Germany. The movie is called Joyeux Noel and I enjoyed it! The clip is from the Telegraph U.K. :
