On Christmas Eve exactly 100 years ago during World War I, soldiers on both sides paused hostilities to exchange gifts and play soccer. The greatest war in human history was being fought for the pettiest of reasons – more out of misunderstandings and “hurt feelings” than for  any territorial dispute. But on one silent night, it was agreed upon to observe  “peace on Earth”, if ever so briefly.
