It would be nice to actually use the fireplace this year

I love the fact that the fireplace is covered with lots of lights, but I would love to be able to see a roaring fire behind those walls

When I was a child, I watched lots of films showing weird people resting under a blanket next to a wood fireplace. I have easily fantasized about a fireplace since that time seeing the movie. In our head, I easily believe that resting by the fireplace was a serious activity for folks that had a fireplace in their home. I didn’t believe the story of Santa Claus and the Jolly guy coming in the chimney. I knew the fireplace was necessary for its intention. You are supposed to build a fire to keep the house warm during cold winter weeks. I was easily excited when I found out that my parents bought a house with an indoor fireplace. My childhood flashed quickly and I saw myself resting with hot chocolate and a fuzzy blanket right in front of the fireplace. Unfortunately, I have not been able to enjoy that fantasy because my parents just use the space for decorations. The mantle has pictures, candles as well as decorative chachkies. The fireplace is a part of the family living room where we usually hang White Christmas lights. The fireplace is not used for heating the house. I love the fact that the fireplace is covered with lots of lights, but I would love to be able to see a roaring fire behind those walls. I would love to experience the nostalgic feeling while staring into the fireplace as well as listening to loving songs at the holidays. One year I am hopeful this will actually come true.
