Bing Crosby & David Bowie - Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy 1977




In the lyrics of this song, the singer relates how, as a poor boy, he was summoned by the Magi to the Nativity where, without a gift for the infant Jesus, he played his drum with the Virgin Mary's approval, remembering "I played my best for Him" and "He smiled at me".(Wikipedia)

"Peace on Earth, Can it be?"
"Every Child must be made aware ..."
"Every Child must be made to care ..."

It is my prayer on this special celebration of the Birth of Christ, that we all find peace and love in our hearts and lives and that, in doing so, we engender the hope for Peace on Earth.

Merry Christmas, Everyone ...
