No fireplace inside, but we've got a fire pit in the backyard. Never lived in a house with a fireplace.
It's a distinct smell when you walk by someone's house and you know they have the fireplace burning.
Pellet stoves are popular around here for heating as well.

1) Do you have a fireplace?

Yes, 2 of 3 homes I have lived in had them. Most of my relatives houses also had them.

2) Do you use it?

No. The house we live in right now has a gas fireplace and the pipe was capped off by the previous owners. The house has AC/Heat, so there is not really much need for it since the forced air heats other areas of the house. There is a "fake fire" in the fireplace (one of those plug in electrical flickering flames and logs).

I don't, but my folks do. They use it as well, both to provide heat & to heat a kettle for drinks. It's enclosed though so no toasted crumpets (OMG you should try them wi butter or marg)

I've watched those fireplace videos too, I love an open fire in winter. However we were saying just this morning how much better we find the new house being without a fireplace. Everything can be clean and light in colour because there is no soot and mould from buring old wood.

The first 2 houses I lived in had a fireplace.  They gave off heat, but a chimney was not needed.

The first house my husband and I bought did not.

After moving to Indiana, the house we bought has a fireplace.  We used it a few times the second winter we were up here, but had to be careful, as our children were 3 and 5.  It didn't help that our younger child decided to put some of his sister's toys (Ponyvilles, actually) in there!  Luckily, I found them before it was lit again.

It has been several years since we've used it.  We need to have the chimney cleaned before attempting to use it again.

...live in Florida where it gets cold for maybe a week or two...

Tell me about it...I grew up in Miami!

I have a gas fireplace, which seems to be uncommon in my area. All the houses I looked at while house hunting had pellet stoves, which kinda freak me out.

I use my fireplace, but only for short periods of time in the winter, since my MIL blasts the heater way too high, and I run very hot.

My mother has one but it's a gas one. Personally, I hate it.
