For Christmas Eve: Give Me Love, Give Me Peace On Earth

For Christmas Eve: Give Me Love, Give Me Peace On Earth

It's Christmas Eve. One day to go until the big holiday.

A day of giving and receiving presents. How's your shopping going? I was just at Best Buy looking for deals. There were more employees than customers. I take that as a good sign.

A day of solemn religion. Jesus' birthday.

A day of hope for some, despair for others. For some people both.

On this Christmas Eve, all I ask is for love and peace on Earth. It's not asking for too much, is it?

There has never been a more spiritual musician than George Harrison. Although this is not a true Christmas song, I believe it represents the spirit of the season better than any Christmas song. With that I leave you with two version of this song:

The original:

And a newer version by the Avett Brothers:

Have a great Christmas. Here's to all finding love and peace in their lives.

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
