Tim Minchin's Christmas Carol
Friday, November 25, 2011
He’s got some bones to pick with the holiday, “all the usual objections to consumerism, to the commercialization of an ancient religion,” he sings, over a gentle waltz, “to the westernization of a dead Palestinian press-ganged into selling Playstations and beer. But I still really like it.” For an Australian living thousands of miles from home, the chance to see his parents, siblings, and Gran is a little miracle worth celebrating.
