It’s a hundred degree summer day outside, a perfect time to celebrate Campfire Day. Let’s add some heat to what is already hot! Now I love a great campfire, there is something relaxing and soothing about sitting by a fire… and a few hot dogs or marshmallows and you got a perfect evening of fun and down time. And I am not complaining that it falls on the first Saturday of August, it just might be a little nicer on a cooler fall or winter day when it’s no longer scorching outside. The day was invented, sort of, by Bob Matthews from Rochester, NY in 2017. I say sort of because campfires have been around since man harnessed the power to capture and make fire. It’s kind of odd we did not start celebrating it until 2017.
How to celebrate – Plan an evening under the stars with a family campfire. Make sure you take all safety concerns seriously about campfires. Try and organize a neighborhood campfire in your community.
