Tradition of the Yule Log
An ancient tradition originating in Europe, the yule log warmed the house during the cold Christmas night. It was ceremoniously brought to the fireplace and lit with the remnants of the log from the previous year. This was to ease trouble from the past and bring good fortune and protection from fire. Today the yule log takes the form of a traditional French cake shaped like a log, a perfect finish to a Christmas feast.
