Does the thought of faking nice with your in-laws make you wish holiday family gatherings would disappear? Try to follow the example of some World War I enemies and play nice for just a bit. It was Christmas Eve in 1914. The war had raged for six months and was well on its way to becoming the bloodiest conflict in history. But the carnage and deep divides took a brief pause in the name of Christmas. French, Scottish and German troops called a spontaneous and unofficial Christmas truce along Germany's Western Front.
