BASED ON A TRUE STORY.

Something you may not know about me is that I love history, and I love stories based on real life events. Love it. Growing up I read a ton of historical fiction, and the history of America and other countries and cultures always intrigued me. I love learning about my family history, where we are from, who I'm related to down the line, who was the first to come to America, where they all settled, etc. History is so important because it has shaped who we are and how we got to where we are. It's crucial for us to remember the events that brought us here and the people who have sacrificed so much for us as we continue to move forward in this ever changing world.

I realize this is a Christmas ad, and we aren't even past Thanksgiving yet, but it's too good not to share. It goes far beyond Christmas, and shows us a beautiful glimpse of humanity in the midst of a war torn world. Inspired by real events from 100 years ago, this touching ad brought tears to my eyes. Be sure to check out the story behind the ad here.



XOXO.

Thanks for sharing Meg, it's really beautiful. There is actually a German/British/French movie about this topic called "Merry Christmas". It came out in 2005 but if you haven't seen it yet, you should check it out. It's heartbreaking but very beautiful.
