Day 19 – The Yule Log

The Yule Log


Many countries have the traditions of the Yule log. These were originally a large log/tree that was selected close to the beginning of the month of December. The idea was to bring into the house the log/tree that would burn for the longest and so therefore heat the room the best and for the longest time.

1. chocolate Yule log – a chocolate cake in the shape of a log

2. In New York a television station broadcasts round the clock images of a burning fireplace… check it out (number 7)
