Id like to take this opportunity to admit two things: first, I'm not particularly religious and second, I am a huge sucker for Christmas.
All of it. I love the crass comercialism, the shopping, the massive wave of video games and electronics.
And I also love the true spirit of the holiday. I'm not really religious but the closest I come is Christmas, when stories of the manger are in the air.
Ok, enough of that schmalz, here's another thing about Christmas I love: the insane engineering projects some folks transform their home into.
Fire hazard? Sure.
Annoying to your neighbors? Sure.
Psychosis inducing to live in? Definitely.
But who cares. It's Christmas-y!!
