I'm lucky enough to have two fireplaces - one gas, one wood. But in past years, people in warm climates or people without fireplaces, would set up cardboard fireplaces as part of their Christmas decorations. Whether or not they could support the weight of stockings is another story. Imagine the anticipation of the children in a household as their parents brought out the decorative fireplace and began to set it up!
I love that this cardboard Christmas fireplace lights up - and that it's so glittery!
