    My first exposure to Tim Minchin was this song. When I caught his visual appearance, I thought "who's this dropout?" but by the end of the song I was a mess. Judging a book by its cover is always dangerous!

    Even if you don't agree with what he sings of in the first half, the turn it then takes must surely have almost universal backing.

    Ah yes, Xmas in the sun..... full summer holidays, sitting on the beach and eating cold watermelon. the days of beer and prawns on the bbq... white wine in the sun.. :)

    While those in the northern lands are looking out at snow....

    those story books we read as kids about xmas with the neat pointy trees, making snowmen, sledding, everything all pure and white..... was just too unbelievable for me, when outside was blazing sun and the bitumen was melting ........:lol:

    I've had the privilege of doing just that around Xmas. Terrigal Beach with a bottle or two of cleanskin white.

    My first thought upon reading the thread's title was that it would be about different ways to keep your white cold on a hot day. That probably says more about me than anything else...

    After I put the post up, I thought I should have mentioned that the song has very little to do with actual white wine in the sun!
