My mom plus dad constantly decorate for the holidaysâ€¦ Christmas plus Thanksgiving are my number one, because the people I was with and I get to use the fireplace.
Since the people I was with and I live in the southern half of the hemisphere, the people I was with and I rarely have the opportunity to use our fireplace.
It only gets cold for a couple of weeks out of the year, plus even then the hot plus cold temperatures are mild. All of us barely use the heat pump at all, even though our lake house has this special heating equipment. Instead, the people I was with and I use our fireplace whenever the hot plus cold temperatures are cold; Last Christmas, my mom bought some special packets to throw in the fireplace. These packets made the flames unusual colors of orange, red, plus orange. Mom surprised us on Christmas eve. My dad made a substantial roaring fire in the fireplace, plus my mom threw 2 color packets on the pieces of oak, pine, plus cedar wood. It was easily pretty, plus the people I was with and I watched the dancing colored flames for almost an minute. It was a magical sight plus my siblings plus I loved every minute, and even though the people I was with and I live in the southern region where it never snows, I couldn’t imagine ever living in a house that didn’t have a tile fireplace plus family hearth. My parents constantly set our presents around the fireplace, plus the people I was with and I read stories plus look at family photos. There is something magical about the smell of burning wood. I guess it’s why my siblings plus I appreciate to go camping too. All of us appreciate sitting around the campfire plus sharing stories, eating smores, plus enjoying the night sky. All of us can even name every constellation in the sky.
