Happy Christmas, stay safe… this is an open thread.
When I lived in New Orleans, I’d *always* make it out to the bonfires. Nothing more fun for a pyromaniac than being surrounded by pyromaniacs setting off fireworks all over the place and lighting up the night!
There’s something fitting to the season about bonfires in the middle of winter. Must be a spectacular scene!
Nothing like adding more carbon to the environment.
But it is vast fun and, really, it doesn’t add *that* much. Once a year, one spot on one river, in the cause of people having the time of their lives. It’s worth it. There’s ways to cut megatons of carbon (building insulation, for starters) that don’t involve taking any of the fun out of life.

OMG, that’s hilarious!
