In the latest example of embracing winter, a man on YouTube showed the world -- and Mother Nature -- that plenty of fun can be had, despite the deep freeze a good part of the country has been suffering through the last few weeks.

The man created a homemade luge track that goes the length of his house. It's fun for the whole family, not to mention any aspiring Olympians.

The calendar may say March and the thermometer may still read more like deep winter, but it's nice to see someone stand up (or in this case, lie down) and go all out, telling Mother Nature we'll take what you throw at us.

And lots of people have gotten on the luge-in-the-yard bandwagon, too. Check out this other guy who's decided to turn his backyard into a luge course (and a winter wonderland):
