DENVER (AP) - The University of Denver is participating in a worldwide remembrance of the temporary peace that broke out during World War I 100 years ago.

On Dec. 24, 1914, impromptu Christmas truces began to take hold along parts of the Western Front between British and German soldiers. In some cases, they exchanged gifts and even played soccer with each other.

To mark the occasion, 100 bell towers around the world, including DU’s carillon (‘ker-?-?län), will play Christmas carols, beginning with “Silent Night”.

The Denver Post (https://dpo.st/1AIpkgA ) reports that Carol Jickling Lens will start playing in DU’s iconic Williams Tower at 7:14 p.m. MT. The public is invited to stand outside the Ritchie Center and listen.
