I have a great fondness for Chicago; I grew up in the northern ‘burbs. Last Christmas, when we were banished from my parents’ home (after we “stole” my father’s car so he wouldn’t kill someone with it) we drove around the city on Christmas night. Not much traffic, but all the lights were on. Best evening of a miserable holiday. (That year — this year we stayed in PA and hung with Deb’s family. Much better Christmas.)
