Default Remember John

In johnlennonforum.com we want to do something really special for John. I'd love if Beatlelinkers join too!

His birthday is coming up, October 9th- so we thought that it might be nice to do something for that. This is the idea: It's a kind of "event" for him:

*On October 9th, we'll dress in white as a symbol for peace, and to remember John's birth, John's love and work. We'll also write something to remember him everywhere we can. And finally, we'll light a candle in his honour.

Of course! that would be great. there are no rules to follow: If it's white, it counts

Yeah, there's also an idea about december 8th. Here it is:

*On December 8th, we'll dress in black to show that he's still with us in our hearts, because we remember him. And we'll also remember everything for us during his life. We'll also light a candle in his honour

I gotta find a nice white t-shirt, you see it's my birthday party that day too.

I'll light a candle (not the one in the cake, other) and I'll listen to their songs.

I traditionally burn a candle for John on both those days, and I say a special prayer for his family.
I also write a letter to him and then burn it; sometimes I post the contenes here, sometimes not.
It is a nice idea, thank you for sharing it.

I always wear white on Oct 9, and I usually bake a cake, burn a candle, and write a letter to John. On Dec 8, I always wear black, burn a candle, and write a letter. I usually have a little cry, as well.

I'll dig out the old white shirt with the pic on it the same as Ana's avatar, my mum bought for me when she went to the Cavern. It has 1940 - 1980 under the pic.

Oh cool DLD...I really hope you can make it! Well the event/vigil starts at 12 noon, I will be there around 11:30, but I'm sure there will be people there way BEFORE then...so basically come anywhere between 11:00-12 noon

Donna... I work in Pasadena and I *do* work this Saturday, but I swear to god I can make it from Pasadena to Hollywood in fifteen minutes flat (my super-special-secret-shortcut! the 134 to forestlawn drive to barham blvd to highland and hollywood-- easy!) Just in case I make it, I'll be wearing a black beatles tank top. And if not... blame it on my boss.

Gee...on John's birthday I am going to be wearing my regular clothes, taking my son to a classmate's birthday party, spending the day with my family and staying as FAR AWAY AS POSSIBLE from Strawberry Fields. (Too many sickies, weirdos and bizarros for my taste on that day and December 8, thanks...I can go there any time I want and prefer to avoid it on "anniversaries.")

I sometimes light a candle for John on his birthday, and I ALWAYS remember him in my own way on the anniversary of his birth. I would absolutely rather celebrate his life than mourn his death. However, I also always burn a memorial candle for him on the anniversary of his death, because, being Jewish, that is what we do to remember a deceased loved one. I usually go out and buy a special memorial candle and burn it for 24 hours on December 8. I would do that for a member of my own family, and that is why I do it for John, because I consider him such. In fact, I feel closer to John than I do to most of the people to whom I am related.

A nice idea for some kind of "world" celebration on John's birthday, but I'm afraid it's a bit difficult for me to participate this year, anyway...

On John's birthday this year, I'll be in Chicago visiting my cousin and looking at bridesmaid dressses (she's getting married in March, 2005). I'll think of John that day, I do every day.
