There’s a provincial park about ten minutes from town. At this time of year, it’s closed but people still go there all the time, to walk their dogs or just enjoy the trails. We, on a very damp, but not rainy day, had a picnic and fire there. Someone brought chilli, there was hot cider punch, and we roasted hot dogs and marshmallows.
The point of all this is, I highly suggest gathering a group of people you love, and having a fire, rain or shine, on a winter’s day, preferably right before Christmas.
