Pipes of Peace

This video is a song written by Paul Mc Cartney, one of the Beatles. It tells the true story of Christmas Day 1914 when the British and German troops lay down their weapons for the day, shared some food and played a game of football together. This could be used as a great introduction about war and conflict, especially at this time of year. It could also be used as a starting point for some creative writing.
