I’ve never cared much for Christmas — aside from a really long vacation from school or work, I never really got the fuss. In fact, I’d more than happy to ignore this holiday and just get wasted, eat Chinese food and catch the premiere of The Iron Lady. However, in the spirit of the season, I came across a few items that struck my fancy and would make even my Grinch’s heart grow marginally larger.
