Happy Holidays

“Home for the holidays” is an interesting phrase to me right now. I’m in a transitional time of my life and I don’t really feel like I have a home at the moment. I don’t quite belong anywhere. But it’s still nice to see Mom & my brothers.

I feel like I have a lot to say on many subjects, so I’m going to make this a very short post and see if I can get some other writing done. But in honor of the holidays, I thought I’d share one of my favorite Christmas songs, “White Wine in the Sun” by Tim Minchin. It’s the only explicitly atheist xmas song I know, and since it’s written by an Australian it also has some bits that sound strange to those of us in the Northern Hemisphere.

But I think that whoever you are, if you’re reading this you’ll probably agree with the sentiment of this song, and with what Tim (and myself) finds really important about the holidays.

Whether you’re celebrating a merry Christmas, a happy Hanukkah, a blessed solstice or a sexy Saturnalia, enjoy your holidays. And enjoy the company of each other. It may not be true that all we need is love, but it certainly makes what we have far more enjoyable. Take care everyone.

  1. Tim Minchin is a huge favorite of mine, too, and I rarely listen to this moving track without weeping, honestly. Emotions are tricky things. Thank you for sharing this lovely holiday message.

  2. funny thing (at least to me), i had just discovered tim minchin by accident about 4 days before you posted this and had only listened to two of his songs, “lullaby” and “white wine in the sun”. since then i have been listening to more of his stuff and find myself growing more amazed and delighted in him than i have been in any performer for a long long time. it makes total sense that you should like him too, and lisa!
