Happy Birthday Johnny  heart

Image Enlarger

You were a beautiful man with a beautiful soul and I will always be grateful for how you influenced my life, as well as many others.

Sitting here with my Imagine album, listening to some of my favourite songs by John…  "Im My Life" came just ended

Ugh, too many John feels tonight.

Anyone going to be in NYC on October 6th? @Into the Sky with Diamonds?

Yoko Ono Plans Largest Human Peace Sign for John Lennon's 75th Birthday

"Ono hopes to congregate between 6,000 and 10,000 people on October 6th at Central Park's East Meadow to form the human peace sign, which would set a Guinness World Record. "

Why are they are having it on the 6th when John's birthday is the 9th? Did someone not in the know wrongly invert the 9 and then book the date?

 

Or is it an awful surprise?

Okay call me a cynic if you will, but can someone PLEASE explain to me why birthdays of (famous) people continue to be celebrated after they die? John isn't having any more birthdays, so why wish him a happy birthday? I can understand celebrating the fact he was born on that day in 1940, but many people will wish him a happy birthday. Even though it's a month away, everybody knows the 'Happy 75th birthday, John!' messages will be plastered all over the internet when the day comes. It just seems wrong to me to do that.

No idea. But i have no understanding of hundreds of customs that are carried out by the masses that are done because its what to do ie the giving of birthday/christmas cards.

I don't give out birthday and Christmas cards because it is "the thing to do". I do it because I enjoy giving the greetings to my friends.

So is it better to get a card, a text message, a phone call or a present? Or does it not matter? Is there a scale depending on the level of friendship and familiarity?

 

I happily admit all of it is a mystery to me.

Presents for some family and some friends. And sometimes I randomly get a gift for someone if I see something I want to give them that I think will make them happy.

I am one of those who readily wish the dearly departed a Happy Birthday . It does feel weird when doing so, however. Any suggestions for alternatives?

"Acknowledging the day you were born, John!"
"Contented wishes on this day of remembrance, John!"

Hmmmm...I think I'll stick with Happy Birthday - sue me.

Feeling very sad today, on what should've been John's 75th. I'll just have to comfort myself by listening to the wonderful music he gave to us. Thank you, John... heart
