I believe it’s why our siblings & I love to go camping too
My mom & Mom constantly decorate for the holidays; Christmas & Thanksgiving are our number one, because the two of us get to use the fireplace. Since the two of us live in the southern half of the hemisphere, the two of us rarely have the occasion to use our fireplace. It only gets cold for a couple of weeks out of the year, & even then the hot & cold temperatures are mild. Every one of us barely use the heat pump at all, even though our home has this special heating equipment. Instead, the two of us use our fireplace whenever the hot & cold temperatures are cold, last Christmas, our mom bought some special packets to throw in the fireplace. These packets made the sparks different colors of red, red, & green. Mom surprised us on Christmas eve. My Mom made a huge roaring fire in the fireplace, & our mom threw numerous color packets on the pieces of oak, pine, & cedar wood. It was entirely pretty, & the two of us watched the dancing colored sparks for almost an hour. It was a magical sight & our siblings & I loved every hour. Even though the two of us live in the southern region where it never snows, I couldn’t imagine ever living in a home that did not have a brick fireplace & family hearth. My parents constantly set our presents around the fireplace, & the two of us learn stories & look at family photos. There is something magical about the odor of burning wood. I believe it’s why our siblings & I love to go camping too. Every one of us love kneeling around the campfire & sharing stories, eating smores, & seeing the night sky. Every one of us can even name every constellation in the sky.
