Default Re: Fireworks over Tehran

Given that I was about 9 when Band Aid's Do They Know It's Christmas came out I may have a slightly confused understanding of the title. As a 9 year old, I figured *everyone* in the world KNEW it was Christmas, but the fact people in Ethiopia were dying of starvation they, unlike me, wouldn't be wondering if they were getting a space hopper for xmas. i.e. can you possibly celebrate christmas in such conditions.

And for the record, Do They Know It's Christmas was way better than We Are The World. Plus, it came out 4 months earlier too--which I think speaks volumes about why We Are The World "came at the end of everyone paying attention to the same thing" (as Heather said). Those four months were crucial in how public awareness was raised about the famine (at least in the UK).
