Getting into the Christmas spirit… and doing it properly this time
For those people I’ll be thinking of this weekend as I’m drinking white wine (or, as the case may be, grape juice) in the sun – no list necessary, they know who they are – my favourite Christmas song. The rather atheist-y content might not meet with universal approval with them but for my money it’s one of the most beautiful and moving songs there is, and if Christmas is a time for family then Tim Minchin’s song fits better than those of Sinatra or Crosby, much less anything the bloody X Factor is going to sick up into record stores.
Love to mine, and sláinte mhaith to you and yours.
Incidentally, I noticed on Tim Minchin’s YouTube channel that proceeds from iTunes downloads (link) of White Wine in the Sun until February 2012 will go to the National Autistic Society.
