Christmas: Word of the Day: Crazy

"Of course I'm crazy, but that doesn't mean I'm wrong."

Hey everyone. Wednesday's Word of the Day coming to you today... Thursday - Christmas. The word that I chose today is "crazy", because it is a frequently used word in my vocabulary and I often use it to refer to myself. I also found that I used "crazy" a lot around this holiday --referring to christmas shopping, prepping for travel, family. So I figured that I would do some digging and get you the technical, literal definition -- because if someone ask's you what "Crazy" means, you can't just reply with "cailin"....
