Atheist Advent Calendar – Day 23 – Music Monday – “I really like Christmas/It’s sentimental I know/But I just really like it/I’m hardly religious/I’d rather break bread with Dawkins than Desmond Tutu to be honest”

There was a method to my madness in posting a Tim Minchin song as my Music Monday selection for each of the past few weeks during my “Atheist Advent” series.

It was all to lead up to Minchin’s ultimate achievement and one of the best non-traditional Christmas songs I’ve ever heard – funny, insightful, wistful, sentimental, uplifting and nostalgic all in one.

And I can’t help but note that it was an Anglican friend who first brought this song to my attention.  And when I recently talked to her, she said she was no longer part of the Anglican faith and considered herself more of a Buddhist (which in my mind is sort of a way of saying “I want to have a religion to call my own – even though I think like an atheist!”) 😉

Anyhow, here you go…have the kleenex handy!
