Another Atheist Christmas Song (not mine)

Nothing from me right now--getting ready for classes one last time before Thanksgiving. I have so many people to give thanks to, too. With any luck, I will have time to properly do so. For now, though, a little more evidence that the Bill O'Reilly's of the world, with their images of an atheist war on christmas, are living in a fantasy world, a nightmare of their own creation. This beautiful song is written and performed by Tim Minchin, a skeptic, an atheist, an Australian, a musician, a comic, a genius, a husband, a father, an all-around wonderful person... not necessarily in that order. I suspect it captures the feeling of Christmas for a lot of people.

Enjoy.



Oh, yeah, Tim's website. His merchandise might make a wonderful christmas gift for someone... Come to think of it, so might my book....

I got my copy of your book in the mail yesterday, and I'm pleased as all hell with it and so's my partner, who didn't know it existed. We keep picking it up and reading random bits out loud to each other.

Now I'm trying to figure out who else we know who deserves a copy.

Kudus to you! Elands! Oryxes! (Orices?)

You don't know how happy this makes me!

My very first review! (If you like, you could leave a review on Lulu, I think. Maybe not--I'm new at this.)

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

Mimi--you ok?

Anything complete anonymous strangers at unknown geographical distance can do?

(Oh, if you like this song, you can google for more Tim Minchin. If this christmas song did it for you, I recommend "not perfect".)
