The Joy of Christmas at War

Christmas at war

The joy of Christmas - packages from back home.

And Christmas cards scattered about!

Christmas at war
Holidays were sometimes celebrated in the trenches, decorated with Christmas cards from home.

The simple things are what matter - if it is only a matter of simple fruit on Christmas Day 1943 in Italy.
