Merry Christmas

Pickled Politics would like to wish our readers a very Merry Christmas.

I think we’d all agree that 2011 turned out to be not only surprisingly eventful but also very unpredictable. A great deal has happened around the world during the past year, and it makes one wonder what is in store for the human race in 2012.

Regardless of whether you regard Jesus as the messianic son of God, a prophet, a saint, or simply a great man, his powerful message of peace and compassion, the need to oppose injustice and prejudice, and the importance of helping the poor, the vulnerable and the persecuted clearly still has great resonance as an inspiring example for mankind.

Some suitable music to mark the occasion:

Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan singing “The Face of Love”, accompanied by Eddie Vedder of the American rock group Pearl Jam and Nusrat’s nephew Rahat Fateh Ali Khan (by richards). The song is from the Oscar-nominated film Dead Man Walking.

The simple Urdu/Hindi lyrics mean “What is living without love ? Since you have come into this world, love each other”.

Prince giving a live performance of “The Holy River”. This is actually one of Prince’s more overtly Christian songs (full lyrics here).

On a light-hearted note, you can watch an entertaining Christmas-themed sketch from the much-missed Goodness Gracious Me involving Sanjeev Bhaskar and Nina Wadia via Youtube here, in which Sanjeev reveals the “true origins” of Santa Claus.

Have a safe, peaceful and enjoyable Christmas, everyone.

    Merry Christmas to all. Visits made, lunch provided, dog walked, car put away. Now I can take of my boots and have the first drink of the day. Just in time for Doctor Who.
