Here's an advert we have now in the UK, it's for Sainsbury's Supermarket, and celebrates the football match that took place Christmas 1914 on the Western Front between German Troops and British ones.

The result is not known, but the German's probably won on penalties as per bloody usual........

Wonder if the Ukraine troops and separatists celebrate Christmas too... Just a thought...

Gosh, for a moment I thought they celebrate "Yom ha Ahava" (The Day of Love). Now we should decide what role each side plays (which is the Greeks, which is the Maccabees).

I am in a "festive mood" too. I have just passed the last final exam!!!
In seven classes (5 classes and two labs) I have A. Unbelievable! It was so difficult!
I am a little lost. What people usually do with the freedom?

Congrats!  :BEER:

I'd go out and have a nice freedom steak, drink some freedom beer, maybe watch a freedom movie while enjoying freedom ice cream, take a freedom bath shower, and follow that with some freedom sleep.  ;D
