A day that makes me sad more than anything to be honest. Hard to imagine John at 79, but he should’ve been. Alas...we only have what we have. And it’s magical. Happy Birthday John, whenever you are...as you sang in Bless You.

Happy birthday John!a-hard-days-night-john-1 Thanks for having inspired millions of people to think about peace whether they got to remember you or not. 

And a hb to you Sean too. Hope you're having a good time.

 

Kinda unrelated

I wonder if Paul chose october 9th as the wedding day because it was his way to honor all of the loved ones he had lost, especially John and Linda

I particularly like this date this year because 9.10.19- I like days and months that add up to make the current year.

 

Happy Birthdarino to Sean, and the man himself!

Hugs to both Yoko and Sean on what must be both a happy and sad day.

how does George have a twitter?? That's rather odd.

(I know non-George people run it but I still think it's strange)

Lots of deceased celebrities have official twitter accounts run by their Estates, Fiddy, including John.

It's a way of keeping their memory alive and publicising new releases or events involving them.

Olivia and Dhani oversee George's.

Yes, I noticed that quite a while back, John gave his son the Irish version of his name*. Julian's first name is John as well, I believe (John Charles Julian).

*Seán is the proper Irish form, as any good ASJ fan knows, 'sean' means 'old'. a-hard-days-night-john-6

An extremely happy birthday to you, John! (And also a mathematically impossible number of apples). 

I once carried this quote around on an index card for nearly a year:

"If you want to get peace, you can get it as soon as you like if we all pull together. You're all geniuses, you're all beautiful, you don't need anyone to tell you who you are or what you are, you are what you are. Get out there and get peace. Think peace, live peace, breathe peace and you'll get it as soon as you like, okay?" 

- John Lennon

I can't resist making the third birthday post even if the 9th day has passed in my timezone....

Happy birthday to John and Sean, and happy anniversary to Nancy and Paul. A day full of love. John, I love to imagine you're a 79-year-old man living a peaceful life--but in this life, I'll treasure the precious memories you gave me and hope you've found the peace you longed for. Miss you.heart

It's great to see birthday posts from Beatle people. Yoko's post is slightly sad, while Paul's and Ringo's made me smile. Peace and love *insert random emojis*
