Ok, so weird, i'm sitting here trying to find a great Christmas song to attach to the blog for the month of Dec. and I figured I like the beat of this one and it's a great song, i've known it for years. Well, as i'm listening to the whole song I actually realize what it says about Africa and if they even know it's Christmas time at all.... anyways, I hope you enjoy it, i always thought it was a great song, but now I think it's an even better one.

(song: It's Christmas Time)

I was 13 when this song was released and Bob Geldof organized the Live Aid concert to help with the famine in Ethiopia. Pretty fitting now, isn't it?

I am bawling over the line "Well tonight thank god it's them instead of you"....well now "them" is 'us', isn't it? Our child, our child's birth family? I'll hear this song differently from now on.

Ya great song. I also emember the first time I heard this song when I was a kid and then heard it over and over and over again. Africa was on everyone's mind back then.

Great Song! Since I have adopted Gabbi and been to Ethiopia this song always brings tears to my eyes.
