Warming Up Your Family Holidays

It is always much more fun to celebrate the special events in life with your friends and family than¬† alone. The laughter, hugs, and smiles of loved ones makes even ordinary times a special occasion. However, how can you add some flare to your holiday routine if it has gotten stale? What if they’ve lost their sense of excitement, fun, and discovery?

Consider adding a new and different type of element to your family celebrations that will recreate that sense of joyful wonderment. One of the easiest ways to add a new dynamic to your holiday get together will be with the introduction of a fire pit. Whether it is just used to add ambience, add a decorative touch, or keep people warm while outdoors, a fire is the embodiment of everything that is thrilling and alive.

The winter holidays will prove to be a great time to be outside and basking in the warmth of the fire. You will find many uses where you can bring out the fire pit as you might use it for a Halloween bonfire, or you might use it to provide a nice warm sitting area on Thanksgiving, or you might use it to reign in the New Year in style.

You do not just have to wait for a cool evening to use it, though. Consider the excitement of watching neighborhood fireworks from your own contained sparkler. Or a special glow to add to this year’s birthday candles on the cake.¬† You probably won’t be able to take care of the candle in one breath!

You might be able to use your fireplace, chiminea, or open pit to create a romantic environment that can rekindle the past romance in your relationship. You will be able to cuddle up to each other under a nice blanket as you bask in the warmth of the fire and you can gaze into the fire and remember the great times that you have shared together. An outdoor pit can be a romantic gift to give or receive.

Can you remember those camping trips from years ago where the neatest thing was toasting marshmallows? No need for sleeping bags on the cold ground or trying to pitch a tent in the rain around this fire. Just light up the fire pit and assemble the marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate bars and re-create the memories of childhood in your own backyard. When you are through, just douse your fire, and head inside to sleep in your own comfy bed without the trouble of a tent.

A sure-fire hit for creating new joy and passion at your next holiday gathering of family is a fire pit!
