Once upon a time anyone in a northern winter who didnt keep a fire burning all night had to start the day by clashing flint on steel to make a spark. Or at least one person in the household did. They needed to catch a spark on some flammable tinder and then somehow transfer this hint of fire to a thin splint of wood or a scrap of cord. Blowing carefully on the tinder helped the spark grow into something more like a flame. An easier solution was to touch smouldering tinder with a sulphurtipped match to get enough flame to light a candle. And then they could go ahead with kindling a fire....
