    The part of the song that sticks with me is where they begin with a standard (boilerplate!) greeting of “A very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year” and then Lennon gets wry and sad and honest with the next part “Let’s hope it’s a good one without any fear”.

    It’s a Christmas song for a rough year… and, sometimes, you have rough years.Report
