Fairytale of New York by The Pogues is one of my favourite Xmas songs, but my very favourite is White Wine In The Sun, by Tim Minchin.

I like it because it is about much more than Xmas. It’s about life and love. I’ve never completed a listen of this song without having a little weep – particularly during the second half.

You can benefit the National Autistic Society if you buy White Wine In The Sun here.

(And, what the heck, there is still time to donate to the Amy Winehouse Foundation through the Just Giving page I set up when I ran the Windsor Half Marathon for them.)

I will post again in 2013, in the meantime, why not follow me on Twitter. Happy holidays.
