My adult daughter was raised in a tropical area.

She just moved up North with her new husband and she is so excited to see the snow for the first time.

I told her that she needs to go sledding for me. Even at my age, I’d still go sledding. What she is excited most about is her new fireplace in her new home. Very few houses where we come from have fireplaces. We rarely need heat down here. So, my daughter was quite happy to have a house in the woods with a big fireplace. She told me that she loves everything about the fireplace, from the sight of her new husband chopping and hauling wood to the crackle of the flames as it burnt the wood to the smell of smoke leaving the chimney. I’d never seen my daughter so thrilled about anything before like she is about the fireplace. She even sent me pictures and videos of it, with a fire going and without. She made the pictures and videos look really romantic. She took great care in choosing what to put on the fireplace mantle. I asked her how else they planned to heat their home and she said the heat comes out of the vents, so I assume she has a ducted forced warm air distribution system, in other words, a furnace. I don’t think her fireplace would be big enough to heat her home, not from the way she described her house, but I trust her new husband to make sure she has heat. It’s his job to take care of her now.
