Ah, the warm glow of candlelight at Christmas.

Only . . . this isn’t lit by candlelight. It’s a camera flash.

Where it gets interesting is that the light from the flash is being directed through 120 individually cut 5 cm lengths of black drinking straws, glued together inside a gutter downspout adapter.

All geekiness aside, while I wish you happiness every week, I particularly wish you and youses a happy and wonderful yuletide type seasoning.
