I am sure you have all heard the Paul McCartney song Wonderful Christmastime at least once. A nice, wholesome song a people getting together and “Simply having a Wonderful Christmastime”, right? Well…maybe not, according to one theory. According to Canadian actor Ryan George, the song is “About friends practicing witchcraft but then someone walks in and they suddenly have to play it cool.” That’s funny…I could have sworn Wonderful Christmastime was about Christmas, and not Halloween. Ryan points to the lyrics, “The moon is right, the spirits up; we’re here tonight and that’s enough.” He alleges that the line “Simply having a Wonderful Christmastime” signals someone walking in and the friends having to quickly change the subject. I admit, the song is maybe a little weird, but I also think people are reading too much into this. To me, the line “The moon is right, the spirits up; we’re here tonight and that’s enough” simply implies a moonlit night with friends sitting around drinking alcohol…in other words, “spirits”. That’s it. Period. I think people just want attention on social media. And yes, I am familiar with the fact the Beatles allegedly used subliminal messages in their songs. For example, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds (LSD) and the “Paul is Dead” rumors the Beatles played into. But why drag subliminal messages into a Christmas song? I am sorry, Mt. George, but I do not see the logic or connection. I think in a world obsessed with conspiracy theories, especially online, people like to try and make connections that simply aren’t there. And I think the fact Paul McCartney is a former Beatle who “died” in the 1960s just adds fuel to the fire. So what do you think? Is Paul McCartney’s Wonderful Christmastime witchcraft theory legit? Or is it just another theory with no backing evidence? Let me know what you think in the comments and as always, thanks for reading!
