Advent Calendar of Non-Overplayed Christmas Songs No. XXIII

Santa has already done most of the world, saving California the best for last, but I still have two more chocolates left in my Advent Calendar of Non-Overplayed Christmas Songs. Since John Lennon died 30 years ago this December. & 39 christmases (christmi?) ago he & Yoko put a billboard in Times Square in the middle of a violent war declaring "War is over! if you want it" advertising this Christmas single from the Plastic Ono Band. This may be a slightly sentimental point, but we ended a war this year (mostly), & that was because we wanted to end it bad enough to elect a president who is against stupid wars. So, Happy Christmas (if you want it).
