Some television stations bring you a view of a roaring fireplace during the Christmas season.

We decided to do something different: an authentic, downhome wood stove. We introduced the feature last year, and we're happy to bring it back again today. 

It runs about seven and a half minutes; if you find it relaxing, just play it again! We heard that the video is a suitable complement to a variety of activities, including unwrapping presents, making breakfast, reading and enjoying a day at home with family. 

Our thanks to the folks at Lester's Farm Market.
