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 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 fireplace mantel wall shelf beam 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.
