My Favourite Christmas Song
Hello everyone! I’m feeling the Christmas spirit, especially with today’s topic for Blogmas. My boyfriend surprised me with a mini Christmas Tree today, which made me so so happy! I’ve been feeling sad that we haven’t decorated the flat for Christmas, the decorations are in my parent’s attic, and he bought a small one to surprise me!
So today I thought I’d share with you my favourite Christmas song. Now, if you know me at all, or have been following my Blogmas posts, you’d realise I’m not quite conventional when it comes to Christmas. So the fact that this is my favourite Christmas song shouldn’t come as a surprise…
White Wine in the Sun by Tim Minchin
So as I said, it’s not your usual Christmas song, but give it a listen then I’ll explain. Go on, go listen.
Isn’t it moving? Don’t get me wrong, I love the usual Christmas songs, they fill me with cheer and excitement and all that. White Wine in the sun though, it feels more personal to me. I’ve spent roughly 5 Christmas’ at home my entire life. The rest have been spent in Tenerife with my family, which I talked a bit about here. For me, Christmas didn’t mean snow or Turkey, it meant friends and family who went to Tenerife every Christmas too. My Tenerife family consisted of a rag tag bunch of people we’d made friends with over the years and I loved it.
So for me, White Wine in the sun feels far more personal. It makes me think of my family and friends. It also makes me cry quite a bit when I listen to it.
Anyway, enough about me, what’s your favourite Christmas song? Are you enjoying blogmas so far?
