Silent Night

This beautiful video made me cry. It speaks for itself.  I am just sorry it's an advert for Sainsbury's.

    1. Hi Sol. I was blubbering from Silent Night. No problem in sharing it - I found it on YouTube.

  2. Made me fill up. (Leaving aside it's an ad). The sadness is the waste of all those brave young lives and their suffering during combat.

    1. I know Jean, that's what made me sad. They were just normal decent people on both sides. It was all complete madness.

  3. The soldiers look so clean - just like their trenches. I guess they must have shopped at Sainsbury's. I didn't realise that there were Sainsbury's local supermarkets in the killing fields of Flanders and The Somme (open 7am to 11pm every day).

    1. I know what you are saying YP but I still thought it was a lovely video, although I must admit, I did wonder about the large bar of chocolate the British soldier had.
