This seasonal song has another very special association. On Christmas Eve 1914, it was being sung by a group of German soldiers in a front- line trench somewhere in France. British troops in the opposite trench joined in. This launched an unofficial "Christmas truce", when soldiers from both sides depite the disapproval of their commanders - fraternised amicably in no-man's-land. Unfortunately, it didn't last.

Wassail!
