This class is about WWI; and while the Christmas Truce is not violent, the war was and the subject of casualties may be brought up by students. My focus for this lesson is this one peaceful event, a ceasefire. As a history teacher, my goal is to tell both sides of the story, and in this story, both sides are winners. 
This class does not teach about the Christian holiday of Christmas. The event occurred during the holiday of Christmas for the fighting troops and is known to historians as, The Christmas Truce.
