As families gather together for holiday happenings, take advantage of any unseasonably “warm” weather you may be experiencing, and gather your family in your outdoor spaces. Chicago, for example, has experienced temperatures in the 40s over the past few days, unusual for this time of year. What a perfect opportunity to stoke up the fire in your fire pit or fire bowl.
Even on chillier days, there’s something so cozy and inviting about gathering around a roaring fire burning safely in an outdoor fire pit or fire bowl. The crackle of the burning logs, the aroma of the wood, and the early fading sunlight inspire many families to pull out their best stories and tall tales for multi-generational entertainment. Only hot chocolate and marshmallows could improve the experience.
There really is nothing that can adequately compete with a gathering of family and friends in the cozy comfort of your outdoor spaces when those spaces are lit and warmed by a toasty fire. The cherished memories created in these moments when loved ones come together make the best gifts of all.
