The aura of our surroundings makes a difference.
Firelight, whether candles, campfire, or sitting in front of the fireplace with a glass of wine, sets an aura of romance in any cultural level.
Are there still bonfires the evening before a big football game in the fall? How many of us can remember standing hand in hand with the teen love of our life? Starlight up above and the warmth of the fire dispelling the coolness of the night, waiting for the ride home when we can snuggle with that love, sets a magic spell.
As we grow older there might be romantically lit candlelight dinners with a new love that are intended to draw an etching around the heart of the object of our love. This atmosphere has the effect of tying a couple closely together. There might be more than a few weddings come into the future of one who woos in such a manner.
And as the years go by, the romance of marriage kindles and rekindles in front of the beauty of a hearth-warmed fire in the fireplace. So, the different stages of life in the warmth of the settings enhanced by firelight continue.
