Drat....I didn't see the moon hide in the earth's shadow but...
I do know how to make fire jump higher and make wonderful story pictures in the flames. This "recipe" for fire magic is a simple one and yet.........it is quick remarkable in the response from the participants around a fire. If you are lucky enough to be able to have an outdoor fire then this is for you. I would not recommend use of this inside because there is a residue of sorts.
The recipe is: 3 parts sugar to 1 part flour. I add glitter in the mix for good measure. When you throw about a tablespoon on a fire that it going well the flames will increase and depending on the wood used will change color. It is not one of those things that the flame will follow the trail of the fire magic powder. It just changes the intensity of the flames.
We have a propane fire pit and since there is nothing except the non flamable perlite chips there is always a delicious smore's smell to the addition of the fire magic powder. When we have used it when camping on a pine log fire, the flames turned more blue and purple......it is so much fun with all of us kids.
Brrrrrrrrrrrr cold. We sat outside on zero gravity recliners and blankets and a "fake fire" last night watching the moon start to eclipse. When the clouds rolled in we took for the house.....well really it was because my teeth were chattering and I couldn't stop. Brrrrrrr again.
Happy Yule my lovelies and keep warm and dry.
