A Secular Christmas Lullaby
I initially refrained from posting this song because of its potential to be offensive, but from my reader poll earlier this year I know there are folks who will also appreciate it. I found it while looking for a Christmas video to post instead of, you know, writing something.
The song, White Wine in the Sun from the Ready for This? CD, is by Australian-born comedian-poet-musician Tim Minchin who is popular in Australia and the UK, but probably doesn’t perform in America without someone thinking of protesting.
The song begins with a bit of a secular rant, but is really about what a non-religious person values in Christmas and half-way through you realize it’s a message to his now 3-year-old daughter.
Results from our recent Christmas photo contest will hopefully be posted before Monday. Things are a bit hectic with the holiday and such.
Here are a few videos from Christmas’ past:
