John Lennon

Today is the 30th anniversary of John Lennon’s death. While I was only four at the time, I’ve come to believe over the years that the world lost someone valuable that day. So in John’s honor, I’d like to post the following, his song “Happy Christmas (War is over) which is both mournful and hopeful, which perhaps makes it a perfect tribute. It’s also one of my favorite Christmas-time songs



HAPPY CHRISTMAS
By John Lennon

So this is Christmas
And what have you done
Another year over
A new one just begun
And so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear ones
The old and the young

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Christmas (War is Over, if you want it, war is over now)repeat with verse
For weak and for strong
The rich and the poor ones
The road is so long
So happy Christmas
For black and for white
For yellow and red ones
Let's stop all the fight

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Christmas (War is over, if you want it, war is over now) repeat with verse
And what have we done
Another year over
And a new one just begun
And so this is Christmas
And we hope you have fun
The near and the dear ones
The old and the young

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear
War is over, if you want it
War is over now

Merry Christmas
