Do you have a fireplace in your home? My family “sort of” has a fireplace. We have an electric one that is built in our television stand. I’m sure you have seen them sold in stores.
I know it’s not a real fireplace, but I enjoy it none-the-less.
Growing up, we had a fireplace in my childhood home. We never used it – ever. It was always covered up to keep the draft out. Thankfully my grandparents, who lived next door, had a fireplace (two of them actually) and used them.
I find it so soothing and very relaxing to sit in front of a fireplace, feel it’s warmth and listen to the cracking sounds and I watch the flames dancing back and forth.
If there ever comes a day that we can finally move out of our condo and into a house, a working fireplace is up there as something I really want in a new home.
During the holiday season, my family and I enjoy watching the yule log that airs Christmas Eve into Christmas morning. The fire, combined with the beautiful holiday music, is lovely.
The streaming service, Topic, has taken the yule log fireplace a step further with their new series, Fireplaces of the World.

Here is some additional information about Fireplaces of the World.
Travel around the world while celebrating the holidays at home! Topic’s upcoming Fireplaces of the World Series features breathtaking fireplaces from Norway, Argentina, Japan and Tanzania. With stylish designs and calming music, this series is the perfect way to unwind as we say goodbye to the second year of this on-going craziness.
Fireplaces of the World is a series of episodes featuring video-wallpaper fires from around the world, reflecting the diverse looks of “hearth culture” which will be a more dynamic, global addition to the holiday-time fireplaces video/television. Each episode is available in two formats: with music from the country or with only ambient sound/fire.
I had the opportunity to stream Fireplaces of the World.
I was under the assumption that they were going to play holiday music, but that is not the case. That is OK. The music they do play to go along with the fireplaces is calm, soothing, relaxing music. It’s definitely something you’d want to watch when you get home from work and you need to unwind.
This trailer gives you an idea of what to expect as far as the types of fireplaces, as well as the music.
Overall I enjoyed it. It was fun to see the different styles of fireplaces from different parts of the world. Some were really cool whereas others I found very odd, or should I say “unique.”
This is not a typical type of program. It’s not something that is action-packed and has you on the edge of your seat. This series is meant to be relaxing, and both visually and musically appealing. I think they succeeded in that.
