The Yule Log started as an annual holiday program in the late 60s at WPIX, a TV station in New York, so that the employees wouldn’t have to worry about working.
The people of New York City, many of whom didn’t have fire places, could have the warmth of a crackling fire beamed into their apartments. In recent years it’s become a meme of sorts, just like everything else.
In 2015 Nick Offerman of Parks and Rec sipped whiskey for forty five minutes as part of one. The absurdity of it was supposed to help sell Lagavulin.”
