The song Happy Christmas (War Is Over) by John Lennon has a special meaning to those who grew up during or at the end of the Vietnam War.
John Lennon has been quoted as saying he was tired of hearing "White Christmas" played on repeat on the radio and in shops around the Holidays and wanted to produce a song that had more meaning than just the typical holiday fluff.
I believe he's given us that with this song that marks the end of fighting with a Holiday message of peace and love for all humankind.
More insights into how the song came about can be found in this tribute by BoingBoing.
Never took the leather jacket off the whole time...
A little backstory is that the idea for the show came from Henry Winklerâ€™s (Fonz) dad. Since Winkler was a good water skier he thought it would be a cool idea.
This episode occured in the middle of season 5 though, which means Happy Days stayed #1 for SIX years after â€œjumping the shark.â€
Arrested Development fans may realize that Winkler is the only actor that jumped the shark twice. In a bit for Arrested Development, a shark was lying on a dock and Winklerâ€™s character had to jump over it.
