    A Christmas Truce was called during World War I. In December 1914, in the midst of the war, soldiers on both sides of the Western Front in Europe spontaneously declared unofficial ceasefires and came together to celebrate Christmas. They exchanged gifts, sang carols, and even played football (soccer) in some instances. The truce was a remarkable display of humanity and camaraderie amidst the horrors of war.

    The Hundred Years’ War was fought between the Kingdom of England and the Kingdom of France. It lasted from 1337 to 1453, although there were periods of relative peace interspersed throughout the conflict. The war was primarily a dynastic struggle for control over the French throne, with the English claiming a right to it through their Norman ancestry. The war involved several notable figures, including Edward III of England, Henry V of England, Joan of Arc, and Charles VII of France.

    The capital city of the Inca Empire was Cusco (also spelled Cuzco or Qosqo). Cusco was located in modern-day Peru and served as the political, administrative, and cultural center of the Inca civilization. It was considered the navel of the Inca world and was a significant religious site. Today, Cusco is a UNESCO World Heritage site and attracts numerous visitors due to its rich history and Inca ruins, including the famous Machu Picchu.
