happy Christmas war is over

The massive industry of the season is based on a belief that three 'wise' Kings travelled vast distances to take gifts of frankincense, gold and myrrh to a baby housed in a stable manger. Since I first heard of this in Sunday School 60 years ago, the donkeys, camels, and credibility have been my main concern. With Baby Jesus, another great influence in life was John Lennon, despite this dopey photo
and despite his marital failure. He meant well -
So, this is Christmas, And what have you done?
Another year over, And a new one just begun


And so this is Christmas, I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one, 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, For weak and for strong
For rich and the poor ones, The road is so long

And 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, And what have we done
Another year over, And a new one just begun

And so this is Christmas, We hope you have fun
The near and the dear one, 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.
