The history of the Yule log stretches all the way back to the Iron Age, when families gathered around a hearth to celebrate the winter solstice. The traditional Yule log cake, however, is only a few hundred years old. Find out how the ritual has evolved over the centuries.

History of the Yule Log
As part of the earliest Nordic rituals, Yule logs were decorated with evergreen and holly, pinecones, berries and other ephemera of the forest, rubbed with fat, salt and wine, then set on fire.
