I'm enjoying the warmth of a combustion fireplace on a day when even the cows seem to be huddling together for warmth.

Do you have a fireplace? How often do you use it?

Not anymore but it is one of the most favorite memories of my childhood. We didn't have a car and often in winter would arrive home wet and cold. A shower and a hot milo in front of the open fire would make the wet and cold walk home a distant memory in a very short time.

How wonderful to turn out the lights, sit by the fire and watch it come alive.
That is heaven, but I did once have it in England, and never forgot that simple
yet very comforting part of growing up.It was very nice indeed.
No, but it would be nice, especially in the winter time.

Yes. Don't most people? Or are fireplaces not common place in Australia because it is so much hotter than in the UK? We have a fire place in the dinning room and the living room.
No fireplaces are not the norm in Australia...LOL.

I was born in England, Australia is a very different place.
Sun-Surf-Beaches. for the most, there are places that 'do' need a fireplace in Australia....but they are not the norm at all.

It is just something I always took for granted as the norm, but it is really interesting to find out small differences likes this about English/Australian lifestyles. Thanks.
Not in this house, sadly. I love a good roaring fire! Though it's rare now in Britain to be able to have one due to pollution control. We have a live flame gas fire in our English house, not as good as the real thing, but I'm looking forward to sitting in front of it again after we've moved.
I do not have a a fireplace - recently spent time at a friend's farm and it has the most amazing fireplace. It was great watching the dancing flames within that confined space , And I thought about :how a raging fire otherwise totally destructive can be tamed to a point of being relaxing.An amazing world we have.

If I had one I will use it all winter.

My parents had a fireplace, so we enjoyed it till I moved out. Now we don't.
Not at all. That's not a necessity where I live.
Although I'd love one, wouldn't get the use of it in the sub-tropics'.

My sister has a 'pot-bellied stove' & uses that in Winter, as it cold where she lives!

Used to have a magnificent grey-stone BBQ, & that was good to warm by, on a cold night, as food cooked!

When went camping, used to sit by campfire after dinner, with a hot 'billy tea' & watch the flames dance around! Loved it! But sadly, no more.
