I'm guessing that if you're a born and bred American like me, you proooobably haven't heard of Australian-British comedian, actor, composer, songwriter, pianist, musical director, and self-described "huge rock 'n' roll megastar" Tim Minchin. But he's someone we totally should know about, because he's written a sentimental Christmas song, "White Wine in the Sun," that gets at the heart of what the holiday should really be about.
It's been six years since Minchin originally wrote the tribute to Christmas, but the singer recently reported that he's "finally recorded a studio version. Huzzah!" and all proceeds from the sale of this song during the month of December 2012 will go to the National Autistic Society (NAS). Awesome!
