TBT: WAR IS OVER
John Lennon and Yoko Ono in 1969, wishing the world a happy Christmas with a message: 'War is over! If you want it.', referring to the horrible Vietnam war. 2 years later, in 1971, they released the song 'Happy Xmas (War Is Over)' as a protest song. 'Happy Xmas (War Is Over)' was the culmination of more than two years of peace activism undertaken by John Lennon and Yoko Ono that began with the bed-ins they convened in March and May 1969, the first of which took place during their honeymoon.
