Someday at Christmas

You’ve probably come across Stevie Wonder’s “Someday at Christmas” on the airwaves at some point. I certainly have. But upon discovering a rendition by a choir, I thought differently good about it and decided to take a fresh and different perspective on the song.

I should mention that it was written not by Stevie but by Ron Miller and Bryan Wells, and though released in 1967, it remains timeless and relevant to this day and age. It sends a message of optimism and makes you dream and hope for a peaceful world.

Someday at Christmas there’ll be no wars
When we have learned what Christmas is for
When we have found what life’s really worth
There’ll be peace on earth

We celebrate Christmas every year—from September ’til the next September, no end Noel. But amid the bright lights and sweet puto-bungbong, I ask between bites, “Where is the love?”

Someday at Christmas we’ll see a land
With no hungry children, no empty hand
One happy morning people will share
Our world where people care

Yet, we keep on dreaming. I guess having Christmas every year keeps the dream and the hope alive. We find joy in giving and receiving gifts, albeit fleeting.

Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmastime

This song has been my prayer—that the dreams the lyrics sing about will be realized by those after me. When world peace becomes as easy as hitting the high notes of this beautiful song while eating delicious puto-bungbong.

Maligaya at mapayapang Pasko sa inyong lahat!

Happy birthday cheers to You, Lord Jesus!
