This cartoon short always scared me as a child. I thought it was depicting a ghost coming out of the dartboard.

"In the early months of World War I, on Christmas Eve, men on both sides of the trenches laid down their arms and joined in a spontaneous celebration. Despite orders to continue shooting, the unofficial truce spread across the front lines. Even the participants found what they were doing incredible: Germans placed candlelit Christmas trees on trench parapets, warring soldiers sang carols, and men on both sides shared food parcels from home. They climbed from the trenches to meet in 'No Man's Land' where they buried the dead, exchanged gifts, ate and drank together, and even played soccer." —Stanley Weintraub, Silent Night: The Story of the World War I Christmas Truce

I think these guys win the award for having the highest number of frowning faces in their own logo.

Fascinating talk about German immigrants in the US Civil War.  Whom did they fight for, and what were their motivations for getting involved?
