Happy X’mas…

So this is X’mas…and what have you done
Another year over and a new one’s just begun
And so this is Xmas, I hope you have fun
The near and the dear ones, the old and the young

Christmas 1
A very Merry X’mas…and a Happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one…without any fear.

It was 1971 when Lennon released this Christmas standard as a single, the time of the horrendous Vietnam War…

…and over the years, many singers have released their covers of the song…but sadly, after 44 years, it has not got any better in this world of ours. In fact, it certainly seems that it is getting a lot worse in the world at large…and even in our own country. Whoever said that all men are brothers obviously got it all wrong, seeing how countries fight against countries, how mass destruction and rampant shooting happen every other day here, there and everywhere…and how even fellow-countrymen do not seem to be able to live together with love and respect for and mutual understanding of one another. In Gandhi’s words at the end of the video clip, “An eye for an eye…will make us all blind.

On this special day and during this beautiful season of hope, love and joy, peace and goodwill among all men…

Christmas 2

…therefore, let us pray for a miracle so that one day soon, we would be able to sing with all our hearts that…
War is over, if you want it
War is over now…
Happy Christmas!

Christmas 3

A Blessed Christmas to all family and friends and everybody wherever you may be…
