Here are a couple of sites that give information about Christmas in the Civil War. My favorite story is at the Battle of Franklin, the two camps had a sort of Battle of the bands, each playing a song in turn. They ended the evening with both bands playing "Home Sweet Home" in unison.

Was watching the History Channel on Sunday and saw the one about WWI and the Christmas exchange between both sides. It just makes you wanna cry when you think they had to turn around several hours later and slaughter each other.
