"Driving home for Christmas"

We all know Chris Rea's Christmas hit very well, but we don't always know where it comes from or how it was composed - or its very close link with MINI!

A Xmas tale

Chris Rea wrote this song in his very own Mini while stuck in a massive traffic jam on Christmas Eve in 1978.

His wife - who had picked him up from Abbey Road Studios - and him arrived late at night at their Middlesbrough home.

This is a visual Christmas tale revealing their - TRUE - story !
