This is a special preorder! Think of it as a crowd-funded kickstarter project that will run until March 22nd. If each product reaches 25 sales by that date, it will go to print and join the Go Ape Shirts catalog. At this point it will go up to the regular $23.99 price point. If it does not reach 25 sales, your order will be refunded, and the world will be a slightly shittier place. The shirt will then disappear forever into the bowels of hell.
These will be printed on white American Apparel tees with a custom Go Ape Shirts tag.

December 24th 1914: Christmas Truce
On this day in 1914, troops across the Western Front during the First World War laid down their arms. Soldiers from all sides participated in the widespread, unofficial ceasefires for the Christmas period. Troops, mostly German and British, exchanged Christmas greetings, songs and even gifts. Both sides also held joint burials where they mourned both their dead. They met in ‘no man’s land’, an area which was usually deadly. The truce began on this day in 1914 when German troops near Ypres decorated their trenches and sang carols, which led to responses from the British troops. As the war progressed, and the violence increased, suspicion grew between the two sides and superiors were stricter about ‘fraternisation with the enemy’ and so less truces were held. However, the truces of 1914 serve as a poignant example of humanity and peace in a horrific and violent situation.
