The Beatles: Love Is All You Need on Christmas

Christmas is the time of the year where one gives others gifts to show our appreciation and affection, a time where we also receive items we've perhaps been wishing to have for a certain time. Yet in the end, most of these gifts are material.

If there is one gift that's not material, inexpensive, easy to give, and can be given at any time of the year and not only Christmas, it is Love.

The Beatles shared this when they performed one of their most popular songs, "All You Need Is Love", on June 25, 1967. On the set of the British TV show, "Our World", The Beatles spread a message of love and unity to audiences worldwide (it was the first British Live World broadcast).
Wearing the latest trends from Carnaby Street, as seen below, they performed to an audience which was made up by the likes of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, Keith Moon, Jane Asher, and Marianne Faithfull. At the end of their performance they posed with posters that had "Love Is All You Need" written in English, French, German, and Spanish.

Merry Christmas to all of you, and remember that Love is all you need!
