After a long day of shopping for the latest gifts and the perfect presents, coming home to the relaxing sounds of a virtual fireplace is the best way to get cozy during the winter. As the sun sets earlier, a virtual fireplace can light up any room and you don’t have to worry about the risk associated with an actual fire. With their bright flames and soothing crackles, if virtual fireplaces were closer to the real thing then you would have to make sure a fire extinguisher was close by.
Don’t have a chimney? Don’t worry, you don’t need that or a poker to enjoy a virtual fireplace. There are many streaming services that offer different types of fireplaces. Some offer music, others have celebrities, and there are some with pets in the foreground as the yule log burns in the background.
