Fun Things to Do Around the Fireplace
For homes in countries where the weather can get very cold, a fireplace is a must. Aside from providing you with heat and adding to the aesthetic appeal of your space, there are actually so many fun things you can do around it. On chilly evenings, you and your family can gather around and “camp out.” Make some space by rearranging your furniture. Place your sleeping bags on the floor and start telling each other urban legends. You can even start making s'mores! It will truly feel like a camping trip, except for the fact that you are indoors. Kids will surely love this idea. If you do not yet have a family of your own, you can always ask friends to sleep over and relive all your childhood camping experiences around your fireplace.
Even if it is not Christmas yet, who is stopping you from celebrating it? Make the yummiest cookies and the most delicious hot chocolate. Bring it by the fireplace and start singing Christmas carols with your family or your friends. Who cares if the neighbours hear you? They might even come ringing at your doorbell to join the fun!
If you are in the mood to get spooked, turn down all the lights and start telling each other ghost stories by the fireplace. The eerie glow from the fire will surely make your tales of horror seem more real and scary. It can also be used to cast sinister-looking shadows on the walls, adding to the fun and the excitement. Indeed, with a little imagination, the fireplace is a great spot to make wonderful memories.
