Merry Christmas from John Lennon and Yoko Ono
A giant billboard in the heart of Times Square in the early seventies announced, “War is Over…if you want it”. The peace-loving message was posted and paid for by a peace-loving couple, Beatle John Lennon and his wife, Yoko Ono. The message attracted a lot of attention, particularly from peace-loving hippies who were strongly opposed to the United States’ involvement in the Viet Nam war. Both Lennon and Ono were outspoken about their opposition to the war and wanted to use the massive billboard to get their message out to the thousands of shoppers that flocked to New York City over the Christmas holiday.
