An interesting history lesson
The tradition of smoking cigars on Christmas comes from a story about humanity, integrity, and respect. Have you heard the story about the 1914 Christmas truce between the English and the German in the French trenches?
General Walter Congreve from the British forces sent a message to his wife about this rare occasion, in which we find out that the Germans called for a day’s truce. The two sides met up in No Man’s-Land.
In his letter, general Congreve gives us a rather detailed description of the event, writing that both officers and men met up, shook hands and exchanged cigarettes and cigars. The general even mentions that he had the chance to shake hands and to smoke a cigar with the most talented shot in the German army – an eighteen-year-old boy.
Well, you can see from all this, that the holidays and a passion for smoking can easily overcome political and other interests, and can make enemies friends- even for a short amount of time. We believe, that the action of exchanging and sharing cigars by the two sides really did have a deep impact on them even though the battle continued after the truce was over.
Luckily, you don’t have to fight in the trenches. You’re at home, relaxing, surrounded by family. All you have to do is to grab your favorite cigar and lighter, and smoke away! Give us a visit, we can help you out with that!
