My husband made such fun of me when I came home a few winters ago with a fireplace DVD. We live in NYC with no fireplace in our current apartment, and I thought it would add a cozy feel to a holiday dinner party. While my friends also made fun of me when they first saw the faux fire, we all sat around the “fire” late into the night drinking, talking and watching the flames. Two of my friends went out and bought the DVD the next day; now I can make fun of them as well. It’s definitely kitschy, but who doesn’t love a little kitsch for the holidays?
