A fictionalized recreation of the Christmas truce – a series of unofficial ceasefires and friendly exchanges that took place between German and British soldiers during World War I. A bittersweet reminder of the senselessness of war.

Following up on last year’s Christmas Sweatz, Rhett and Link are back with their friends to bring a little random holiday cheer our way – perhaps starting a new Christmas trend to replace ugly sweaters along the way. Or not.

December
