As I am writing this, it is a few days to Dec 8th, the day when the world mourns the death of former Beatle John Lennon. People remember him at least twice a year, his birthday on Oct 9th and his death on Dec 8th.

This year Google marked his birthday on Oct 9th, 2010 with a special clickable doodle that plays the song Imagine. A movie entitled Nowhere Boy, a British-Canadian biopic loosely based on John Lennon's half-sister Julia Baird's biography of the man himself. The movie is about his childhood, his first band, his meeting with Paul McCartney, and the eventual transformation into The Beatles, the greatest band ever. Both of these were released on Oct 8th, a day earlier, to coincide with the celebrations of the 70th anniversary of Lennon's birthday which falls on October 9, 1940.

Also, around Dec 8th every year, his anti-war Christmas song, credited to "John And Yoko, The Plastic Ono Band" entitled "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" [also popularly known as "Happy Christmas (War Is Over)" and "So This Is Christmas"] will be played over the airwaves. This anti-war song - combining the hitherto never thought of combination of Christmas and war, was released in 1971. And so, a long long time before Christmas was associated with hunger by Bob Geldolf in Band Aid's "Do they know its Christmas?" (1984), and by Michael Jackson and Lionel Ritchie in USA For Africa's - We Are The World" (1985), John Lennon had already associated Christmas with war in the Christmas favorite Happy Xmas (War Is Over) in 1971.
