December 8th is a rock and roll holiday because....

Jim Morrison was born in 1943.
John Lennon died in 1980.
I saw my first U2 concert at Detroit's Fox Theater in 1984.

JOHN LENNON (Oct. 9, 1940-Dec 8, 1980)

Still sorely missed.

What have you done to make the world a better place today?


Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

I still remember that day, being all of 10 years old. I specifically remember my mother receiving Time Magazine a few days later with that cover of him and thinking how sad it all was.

I'm not really sure you can call the day John Lennon was killed a "holiday", but it definitely is a day of remembrance.

It's a shame John and Jim didn't see the year 2008. Maybe the world would be better for it.

I like your reasons for declaring Dec. 8th a holiday, Lila. I'll agree
