♬ Katy Perry ft Alesso – When I’M Gone

LYRIC

[Chorus]
When I’m gone, I’m never really gone
You think you’re movin’ on
But it won’t be for long, you’ll see
When I’m gone, I’m never really gone
You think you’re movin’ on
But no one’s gonna feel like, feel like

[Verse 1]
Thought it would be easy
Easy to forget me
Let go of the memories (Ah-ah-ah-ah)
Now your bed is empty
And you’re wakin’ up sweating
I’m still in your wild dreams

[Pre-Chorus]
Late nights, callin’ me, callin’ me
Do anything to keep me close
Well, you should know it’s gonna be, gonna be
So hard for you to let me go

[Chorus]
When I’m gonе, I’m never really gonе
You think you’re movin’ on
But it won’t be for long, you’ll see
When I’m gone, I’m never really gone
You think you’re movin’ on
But no one’s gonna feel like, feel like
[Post-Chorus]
Me on top of you
Touch you like I do
No, you’ll never forget
When I’m gone, I’m never really gone
You think you’re movin’ on
But no one’s gonna feel like, feel like

[Verse 2]
You’re chasin’ the danger
It’s just in your nature
Look for me in strangers (Ah-ah-ah-ah)
All these pretty faces
No one can replace it
I’m always your favorite

[Pre-Chorus]
Late nights, callin’ me, callin’ me
Do anything to keep me close
Well, you should know it’s gonna be, gonna be
So hard for you to let me go

[Chorus]
When I’m gone, I’m never really gone
You think you’re movin’ on
But it won’t be for long, you’ll see (When I’m gone)
When I’m gone, I’m never really gone (Never really gone)
You think you’re movin’ on
But no one’s gonna feel like, feel like (No one’s gonna feel like me)
[Post-Chorus]
Me on top of you
Touch you like I do
No, you’ll never forget
When I’m gone, I’m never really gone
You think you’re movin’ on
But no one’s gonna feel like, feel like
(Like me)

[Outro]
When I’m gone
When I’m gone

🎵Ed Sheeran & Elton John – Merry Christmas

LYRIC

Build a fire and gather ’round the tree
Fill a glass and maybe come and sing with meSo kiss me under the mistletoe
Pour out the wine, let’s toast and pray for December snow
I know there’s been pain this year, but it’s time to let it go
Next year, you never know
But for now, Merry ChristmasWe’ll dance in the kitchen while embers glow
We’ve both known love, but this love we got is the best of all
I wish you could see it through my eyes then you would know
My God, you look beautiful right now
Merry ChristmasThe fire is raging on
And we’ll all sing along to the song
Just having so much fun
While we’re here, can we all spare a thought
For the ones who have gone?
Merry Christmas, everyoneSo just keep kissing me under the mistletoe
Pour out the wine, let’s toast and pray for December snow
I know there’s been pain this year, but it’s time to let it go
Next year, you never know
But for now, Merry ChristmasWe’ll dance in the kitchen while embers glow
We’ve both known love, but this love we got is the best of all
I wish you could see it through my eyes then you would know
My God, you look beautiful right now
Merry ChristmasI feel it when it comes
Every year, helping us carry on
Filled up with so much love
All the family and friends all together
Where we all belong
Merry Christmas, everyoneIt’s Christmas time for you and I
We’ll have a good night and a merry Christmas
It’s Christmas time for you and I
We’ll have a good night and a merry Christmas
It’s Christmas time for you and I
We’ll have a good night and a merry Christmas
It’s Christmas time for you and I
We’ll have a good night and a merry Christmas time

15th December (’21): Zamenhof Day

Zamenhof Day (EsperantoZamenhofa Tago, Polish: Dzień Zamenhofa), also called Esperanto Book Day, is celebrated on 15 December, the birthday of Esperanto creator L. L. Zamenhof.It is the most widely celebrated day in Esperanto culture. On this day, Esperantists hold information sessions and cultural gatherings to promote literature in Esperanto.

The history of celebrating Esperanto on Zamenhof’s birthday can be traced back to 17 December 1878, when at a birthday party for his 19th birthday he presented to his friends his Lingwe uniwersala, the first version of his international language. By 1887, this language had evolved into what is now recognized as Esperanto when he published the Unua Libro. 15 December previously used to be also known as Esperanto Day, but that is now celebrated on 26 July, the day Unua Libro was published.

15 December 2009 marked 150 years since Zamenhof’s birth, and there were several events to celebrate. On this date, the authorities in his home town of Białystok, Poland, opened a new Zamenhof Center, and a symposium honoring Zamenhof was held in New York City, featuring talks by Arika Okrent and Humphrey Tonkin among other professors.

Also on this date, the search engine Google, in 33 national language versions (but not the international English one), bore a special version of their logo (a Doodle) emblazoned with the Esperanto flag in honor of the occasion, which generated, on the 30 biggest Wikipedia languages, 1,750,000 page views on the articles “L. L. Zamenhof“.

9th December ’21: International Anti-Corruption Day

International Anti-Corruption Day has been observed annually, on 9 December, since the passage of the United Nations Convention Against Corruption on 31 October 2003 to raise public awareness for anti-corruption.

The Convention states, in part, that the UN is:

concerned about the seriousness of problems and threats posed by corruption to the stability and security of societies, undermining the institutions and values of democracy, ethical values and justice and jeopardizing sustainable development and the rule of law

and delegates to the convention the power to:

promote and strengthen measures to prevent and combat corruption more efficiently and effectively… promote, facilitate and support international cooperation and technical assistance in the prevention of and fight against corruption… [and] promote integrity, accountability and proper management of public affairs and public property…

The “Your NO Counts” campaign is a joint international campaign created by the United Nations Development Programme and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime to mark International Anti-Corruption Day (9 December) and raise awareness about corruption and how to fight it.

The 2009 joint international campaign focused on how corruption hinders efforts to achieve the internationally agreed upon Millennium Development Goals, undermines democracy and the rule of law, leads to human rights violations, distorts markets, erodes quality of life and allows organized crime, terrorism and other threats to human security to flourish.

6th December (’21): Saint Nicholas Day (Feast of Saint Nicholas)

Saint Nicholas Day, also called the Feast of Saint Nicholas, observed on 5 December or on 6 December in Western Christian countries, and on 19 December in Eastern Christian countries using the old church Calendar, is the feast day of Saint Nicholas of Myra; it falls within the season of Advent. It is celebrated as a Christian festival with particular regard to Saint Nicholas’ reputation as a bringer of gifts, as well as through the attendance of church services.

In the European countries of Germany and Poland, boys have traditionally dressed as bishops and begged alms for the poor. In Poland, children wait for St. Nicholas to come and to put a present under their pillows provided that the children were good during the year. Children who behaved badly may expect to find a twig or a piece of coal under their pillows. In the Netherlands, Dutch children put out a shoe filled with hay and a carrot for Saint Nicholas’ horse. On Saint Nicholas Day, gifts are tagged with personal humorous rhymes written by the sender. In the United States, one custom associated with Saint Nicholas Day is children leaving their shoes in the foyer on Saint Nicholas Eve in hope that Saint Nicholas will place some coins on the soles.

The American Santa Claus, as well as the British Father Christmas, derive from Saint Nicholas. “Santa Claus” is itself derived in part from the Dutch Sinterklaas, the saint’s name in that language. However, the gift giving associated with these descendant figures is associated with Christmas Day rather than Saint Nicholas Day itself.
