In the west, marble fireplaces and various festivals also have a close relationship. On Halloween, the most important ritual is to light a fire, and as many small stones are placed in the fireplaces as there are people around. It is said that if a stone is moved the next morning, the owner will die in that year. On Christmas morning, the first thing children do is run to the fireplace to find the presents Santa Claus has brought them. On Friday in Dorset, hanging a piece of toast in the fireplace is said to ensure a good harvest for the coming year.
The fireplace is somewhat mysterious because it is connected to the chimney, which is a passage between the outside world and the inside world. When the furnace doors are closed in the summer, people wonder what’s inside. Because when the furnace door is closed, it creates a convenient storage cellar. When many children draw houses, we are surprised to find that in these innocent pictures, all the houses are painted with chimneys, and the mysterious area beneath the chimneys is the marble fireplace. It can be seen that in children’s subconscious, fire and fireplace are born with a close factor.
Another wonderful thing about fireplaces is that people can predict the weather by sitting next to them and watching the fire change. If the fire is pale, or there are many abnormal sparks or soot clumps, or there is a sudden drop of soot, it is a sign of rain. If a fire is buzzing or a flue is popping and winds are stronger than usual, a storm is on the way. If the flames burn more fiercely, frost is predicted. The fire became the weather forecaster, and the marble fireplace became the medium connecting the inside and the outside. If you also want to install a fireplace in your house, we have many marble fireplace sculptures for you to choose from.
