Tim Minchin’s name is associated with snark and humor to me. When I saw he had a song about Christmas, I expected more of the same. But I was thrown off-balance by this heartwarming song. There are still plenty of critical references to religion, but they’re not the focus – it’s more about the value of family and togetherness. It’s particularly special when someone known for comedy can do things like this or vice-versa.
If you can, take a break in your day and listen to this beautiful song: White Wine in the Sun.
What a lovely sentiment. I hope everyone can feel this sense of welcome and belonging in their family during the holidays regardless of religious views.
