Starting with the winter solstice, the days get longer from now until June. Thatís not such a warming thought, since the winter is just beginning. So, what do you need? Light! Fire!

Today, letís talk about fireplaces. Do the short days of the year make you yearn for a roaring fire? Do you have an opinion about which is better, wood-burning or gas?

For some of my buyers, fireplaces are a must. Some donít care. Some donít like them. Homeowners, did you want a fireplace? Did you get one? Do you use it?

If you are part of the fireplace-less majority, there are alternatives. In 1966, WPIX in New York began airing a film loop of a crackling fire, called The Yule Log. It was a hit in the New York metropolitan area.

Hereís the WPIX crackling fire video. And a quieter version; and another one. Here's one with old-fashioned music. And one with more contemporary songs. If you want the full video trailer version, here's one.

With or without a fireplace, I hope you have enough warmth and light.
