Yule and the Yule Log

border

Today people associate Yule with the "Yule Log," a piece of wood decorated with evergreen, holly and candles.

The word (yule) itself it thought to have links to the word 'wheel,' (or turning) of the year and has associations with the Norse culture. Long ago, a huge log was placed in the fire, often extending seveal feet into the room. It was then burned for several days over the season!
