Hard to believe it's been so long

Okay, so I'm not Christian, but I was raised one, and my family still is. So in addition to my holiday (Solstice/Yule) and YKWIA's (Hanukah), I celebrate Christmas with my family. There's a universal spirit of banishing darkness from our lives and reaching out to others regardless of what holiday you celebrate. Here is a sample of Christmas songs that mean something to me.

Band Aid 'Do They Know It's Christmas?' from 1984 (during my impressionable teens--I was 17 when this was made)

And the newer version from Band Aid 20

It's still needed more than ever.

And just to throw another in, here's John Lennon's 'Happy Christmas (War is Over)'
