Happy Birthday, John Lennon

09 Oct 2018

Today, October 9th, marks what would have been John Lennon's 78th birthday. Every year, in dedication to the memory of John Lennon, the Imagine Peace Tower in Reykjavík, Iceland - a work of art created by Yoko Ono - switches on around an hour after sunset, lighting up the night sky from 9th October to 8th December (the day of Lennon's passing).

The tower serves as a beacon for peace, with a plaque on the tower containing Ono's dedication to her late husband:

I dedicate this light tower to John Lennon

my love for you is forever

Tonight marks the 12th time the tower will be lit.
