Yule Log

A great log of wood laid in ancient times across the hearth-fire on Christmas Eve. This was done with certain ceremonies and much merry-making. (Norwegian, juul, Christmas.)

Ever at Yuletide, when the great log flamed
In chimney corner, laugh and jest went round.

Aldrich Wyndham Towers, stanza 5
