Hi everybody!

This is just a little mass mail to everyone.

I just want to wish you a very merry christmas and hope you will have a good
time and get loads of nice presents.

Also, I got a little something for you to think about: It is a true story
though it sounds unlikely.

In 1914, (the first year of world war one) at christmas night somewhere on
the western front something strnage happened:
Late in the night, troops from both sides spontaneously stopped firing at
each other. The weary infantry men crawled out of their trenches and began a
slow walk towards the middle of the no mans land between the trench lines.
Here the soldiers sat down and began to sing christmas songs, singing in
their respective languages. Afterwards the they wished each other merry
christmas and then went back into their trenches and pciked up their rifles

I think this has a little point to show us all. If the soldiers of the
bitter trench wars in WW1 can say merry christmas to their enemies during a
war, why shouldn't we be a little kind to those around us? Even if we
wouldn't normally be so.

Well, thats enough ranting for now.

MERRY CHRISTMAS, I love you all!
