The True Meaning of Christmas – Family and thoughts of Others

Do They Know It’s Christmas

Band Aid was a charity supergroup featuring leading British and Irish musicians and recording artists.[1][2][3] It was founded in 1984 byBob Geldof and Midge Ure to raise money for anti-poverty efforts in Ethiopia by releasing the song “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” for the Christmas market that year. On 25 November 1984, the song was recorded at Sarm West Studios in Notting Hill, London, and was released in the UK four days later.[4][5] The single surpassed the hopes of the producers to become the Christmas number one on that release.

The Band Aid project inspired other charity records around the world, including We Are the World by USA for Africa (in the United States), Cantaré Cantarás by Project Hermanos (inLatin America), Nackt im Wind by Band für Afrika (in Germany), Ethiopie by Chanteurs Sans Frontiere‘(in France), Tears Are Not Enough by Northern Lights (in Canada), Show some Concern by The Concerned in IrelandSammen for Livet by Forente Artister (in Norway), Maksamme Velkaa by Apua-Orkesteri (in Finland), Chega de Mágoa by Nordeste Já (inBrazil), Za milion godina by YU Rock Misija (in Yugoslavia), Stars by Hear ‘n Aid (international heavy metal artists), Afrika written by Nanna with various Danish artists, and many others.

Since I was 12 years old this song has been my most favourite Christmas Song, I want to share it with you 5/6J and all our Global Friends. Merry Christmas. I love the togetherness of Christmas so watch the blog become all christmasy!

    The true meaning of Christmas it what you think, the main purpose is a religious substanchel point of view with the birth of Jesus and such and such. And our gifts are representing what he got, “gold Frankensence muir”.

    To me the true meaning of Christmas is your family to come together to celebrate Chistmas. The true meaning of Christmas is to have a great time with your family and to have FUN!

    I liked it but I would love it more if the sound of the bass was louder and a bit more techno too. But I liked it 🙂
