Or… My friend, Emily.
How to Make A Huge #$$ Fire
- 1 friend named Emily, preferably with backyard and fire bowl
- 1 severely dried out Christmas tree
- 1 match
The rest is history.
Last night’s bonfire came with some interesting lessons.
Apparently it is true that Christmas trees are a major fire hazard. The air gaps between the needles and the sap in the tree make for a near perfect fuel combination. According to the National Fire Association, Christmas trees account for 250 fires annually and more than $13.8 million in property damage. Yikes!
I also learned that Fire Season in Minnesota is very different from Fire Season in California…
Minnesota – Bonfires, s’mores, creative dinners and improv jam sessions.
California – Forest fires, house fires, and ash raining from the sky.
I think if I ever awoke to find my car covered in ash, I would instantly assume that we are living in the End Times, ahhh!
