Includes an elegant visual fireplace fire that can be used all year long (chestnuts not included). Instructions: Place in DVD and push play. Will begin to warm any room without heat. Do not attempt to roast marshmallows. When using a portable television, place on floor under mantle for best results. Change the holiday music to the sound of crackling fire for year round use. Maintenance free. No chopping wood. No soot. No smoke. No fireplace required. Continuous play function will let you watch the fire for hours! Audio choices include: holiday music, crackling fire or listen to the music and fire together. Song Listing: White Christmas (Irving Berlin), Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow (Cahn-Styrne), The Christmas Song( Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire (Edwin H. Morris & Co.), It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas (Meredith Wilson), Silver Bells (Livingston - Evans), Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas (Martin-Blane), I'll Be Home For Christmas (Gannon-Kent-Ram), The Twelve Days of Christmas , Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly, Jingle Bells, Good King Wenceslas, We Wish You A Merry Christmas, Santa Claus is Coming to Town , Christmas is Coming, It Came Upon a Midnight Clear, Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, Ave Maria, O Little Town of Bethlehem, We Three Kings Of Orient Are, Oh Come All Ye Faithful, The First Noel, What Child is This?

Familiar Christmas carols and relaxing in front of a crackling fire epitomize the holidays. The Happy Holiday Hearth provides an instant, portable fireplace that's mess-free and burns brightly all evening. The mesmerizing flames are complemented by a choice of realistic crackling fire sounds, a holiday music track, or a combination of the two. The music track features traditional choral arrangements of classic Christmas songs like "White Christmas" and "Silver Bells" with full instrumental accompaniment. A similar DVD, Fireplace: Visions of Tranquility, differs by offering multiple perspectives on a fire from ignition to the last dying embers and featuring all-instrumental Christmas carols performed in a baroque style as well as non-holiday-specific classical music. It also has full and widescreen options, and better sound (but it's also significantly more expensive). For more traditional holiday carols, stick with The Happy Holiday Hearth. --Tami Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars So happy with this purchase - We give it 5 stars December 23, 2003
Verified Purchase
This DVD is *just* what we hoped it would be! You have a choice of crackling fire with no music, crackling fire with holiday music, or silent fire with holiday music. Of course, if you turn down the volume, you'd have fire with no crackling or music. The music is a choir that sings in Ray Coniff Singers-style.

The only thing on which I can comment is that the very tops of the flames are not visible on the screen. However, the fire is roaring and bright enough to cast a fire-like glow on the floor in front of the TV. We have enjoyed this very much and have set our DVD player to repeat for hours of uninterrupted playtime.

Great price, great DVD. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Warm Atmosphere ! November 4, 2006
Last year for the holidays, I wanted a "fireplace" for family gatherings. I did my home work and decided on the best DVD to meet my busy and didn't order. Decided to do this early so as to not let another year slip by, but I forgot which DVD I wanted, so I had to repeat the "homework". I wanted the actual fire, not the fireplace stonework, did not want the camera to pan in and out, didn't want to see logs being thrown on the fire or even the fire dying down to embers. I wanted a inviting, realistic fire, all of what this DVD is. The crackling fire sound effects is realistic. I love Christmas music, the music on this DVD is great background music, I can even listen to the "12 Days Of Christmas", which is not a favorite of mine. When I walk into my great room and see this on the big screen TV, the fire is "warm" and glowing. Based on the reviews & internet, it it exactly what I expected. I recommend this reasonable priced DVD, I actually plan to purchase additional copies for my family members as gifts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Songs December 11, 2009
Verified Purchase
I agree with the majority here that this is a fantastic DVD. When I was doing my homework I really wanted a song list. I wanted something very traditional and soothing. No obscure songs, not the same 5 songs over and over, and certainly nothing with, for example, Celine Dion showing off her "range". (Sorry to the Dion fans out there. Not a slam on her, but it isn't what I was looking for.) The songs included on the DVD are the orchestral versions. Which are perfectly relaxing and if you want to belt out a tune while listening you're more than welcome to do so without having to mimic an artist's rendition of the song. The Song Listing from the DVD case itself are as follows:

1. White Christmas
2. Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow
3. The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)
4. It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas
5. Silver Bells
6. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
7. I'll Be Home For Christmas
8. The Twelve Days Of Christmas
9. Deck The Halls With Boughs Of Holly
10. Jingle Bells
11. Good King Wenceslas
12. We Wish You A Merry Christmas
13. Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
14. Christmas Is Coming
15. It Came Upon A Midnight Clear
16. Dance Of The Sugar Plum Fairy
17. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
18. Ave Maria
19. O Little Town Of Bethlehem
20. We Three Kings Of Orient Are
21. Oh Come All Ye Faithful
22. The First Noel
23. What Child Is This?

5.0 out of 5 stars Let it Glow, Let it Glow, Let it Glow . . . December 12, 2004
I have to echo what all of the other reviewers have said; this is a fantastic D.V.D! I live in the U.K. and fireplace videos seem to be a rare and elusive thing over here. I purchased one of these for myself and one for a friend who has a multi-region DVD player and after watching mine today, I'm sure he will love his! I played it with the Christmas music and crackling both on, but turned down low and I felt so cozy and relaxed, I drifted off!! Even my Mum who hates Christmas had to admit that it was lovely and the carol arrangements are very beautiful. I can't recommend this highly enough. Turn off the lights, gather round the T.V. and dream yourself the perfect Christmas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great DVD of a fireplace January 2, 2006
By J. Mah
Based on previous reviews, I purchased The Happy Holiday Hearth DVD and it was great. The music and singing is great!!! Plus the fire is very realistic and I recommend this DVD. One of the best things about the DVD is that there are 3 options to choose: fire; fire + music and fire + music + fire crackling. This was worth every penny.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice fire/music OK January 2, 2007
Verified Purchase
After watching this dvd twice I had to switch to just the crackling fire. The fire is really very nice but not so the music. It is all the same generic choir and the songs tend to all sound alike. Just some instrumental music thrown in between would be nice. I now play the dvd of the fire and my own Christmas music. For the price it's a good deal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Value, Visuals and Music! December 22, 2003
By A Customer
Verified Purchase
I know it's just a video of burning wood in a fireplace, but it really is enjoyable! My 2 kids absolutely love this DVD, and have played it often during the holidays. The music is traditional choral arrangements and enhances the overall experience. You can't beat the low price! Who wants to spend $20 plus for a yule log video? Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Too Cute! July 8, 2004
I love this DVD. It is so cute. The music is nice and soothing, nothing to loud and crazy. I play it at on the kids tv while they take a nap. It's going to be great playing in the background at our Christmas paryt this year.
