So this is Christmas, Yoko Ono?

Why do so many people hate Yoko Ono? I think it has to do with the Beatles breaking up. Maybe the other band members didn’t like her but I bet there were other reasons than just one of the member’s spouse..

I thought of her because I don’t particularly like her voice in the song “So this is Christmas” but I don’t hate her. I just don’t like that version of the song but I like the message and other versions. Now that the radio is playing Christmas music (they never play Hanukah or Ramadan or Diwali songs), I remember which ones I like and ones I don’t. For the record, I can’t stand Santa Baby by Madonna but love Eartha Kitt’s and anyone else’s version. Same with Wham – any other version of Last Christmas is fine.

I tried to look up how Yoko Ono has felt all these years. Being hated. Being blamed for something that probably wasn’t her fault  Being a punch line. I’ll have to wait and see her autobiography, is there one yet?

All I know is it’s simple and easy to shift blame and stress onto one person.  Cohousing sounds like it would only attract mature, deep people who would never do that. I found out the hard way.

I hope your holiday season is stress free and if you don’t like someone’s singing, just change the station.

About CJ

I was a Spanish teacher for 5 years in the Public School system in 3 different states. I homeschooled and taught at a democratic free school. I heard about cohousing in 2010 and wanted to move in right away. I met a group building one in 2018 and got to move in the summer of 2019. It only took a year to want out.
