    I love this song. As time goes on I find that more of the lyrics make sense. Deaths in the family, siblings moving from the UK to NZ. Beautiful.

    I’ve always loved this song but I got to listening to it just recently and when I got to the part about his baby daughter (I have an 18 month little girl now), I just lost it. Thanks, Tim. I love this song even more.

    I personally think this is his least funny song, but it also happens to be my favorite (favourite) song of his. It’s sentimental I know, but I just really like it.

    This makes me sad since I won’t be seeing my dad, my gran and my mum at Christmas since they all have passed on! Make the best of your time together while you have a chance!

    why does this song make me feel nostalgic? i am a canadian and have never drank white wine in the sun at christmas with my family. Cheers

    I’m autistic, and sure appreciate the NAS donations this song produces.

    Like most people, I didn’t realize how much autism plagues our society until I was told I had it myself, let alone how much it affected me.

    It’s perhaps the base of my problems, and as much as the help may not be of use to me, it will to other people who could sure use the help.

    Thank you Tim for this most beautiful song. I love all your comedy, your commentary and your music but you’ve captured the best of love with this song. As you can tell I still playing it all these years later and it never looses its magic!

    Why don’t they play this one on the radio every. Single. Year? Why is it always Wizzard, Boney M and that bloody Noddy Holder song?

    Love this song makes me cry! But really brings home the love of a family and no matter where you are there is always someone pleased to hear from you and loves you x

    I’m an atheist, and not an Australian, and it’s not Christmas, but I hope when I die that my brothers and sister my gran, and my mum, will be waiting for me, drinking white wine in the sun.

    Tim, Thank you………… I will really like my Christmas, this year, with my Mum and my Dad…………………. i will be the only one drinking white wine in the sun…. In Mildura…………. but we will be enjoying this time together………….. There is nothing better…………….. I came so close to not having another Christmas, 9000 miles away from home last year, bloody lucky to be alive …………………….. cherish them, ……family, celebrations.

    I have never been to Australia, but I had a really nice mind adventure when I first heard this song imagining what it would be like having crimbo in Aus. You’re awesome Tim.

  14. Anthony Gadaleta says:

    I dunno what happens around the world but for me Tim’s song totally encapsulates secularists’ christmas mealtimes in Australia for as long as I can remember and that’s been a long long time.

  15. Mark Thompson says:

    I love this song, and I realised it’s very similar to “you have more friends than you know” which I think Glee has on their channel
