When it’s cold outside and the wind is howling, the best place to be is near a fireplace. Throw a couple of logs in, light up some kindling, and watch it flicker and crackle as you wrap yourself in a blanket and get comfy. And hey, even if it’s outside in the summer time, a fireplace is very comforting!
