It’s rare to hear someone saying something heartfelt and worthwhile at Christmas. It’s so easy to trot out the same hackneyed crap and parroted sentimentalism without relishing the beauty of being able to celebrate another year, whilst feasting like Kings in warm houses. We are lucky indeed. So to help you settle in to a real yule, take a few minutes to enjoy this song from Tim Minchin , which includes these fucking marvellous lyrics: “I really like Christmas. I have all of the usual objections to consumerism, the commercialisation of an ancient religion to the Westernisation of a dead Palestinian press-ganged into selling Playstations and beer. But I still really like it.”
Enjoy white wine in the sun.
