I'm in there somewhere.
Yule logs were traditionally brought into the house to burn in the hearth during the twelve days of Christmas. They are supposed to bring peace and good luck for the following year and are a tradition that came to England with the Angles, Saxons and Vikings.
Our alder tree in the front garden was getting far too big this year so in the Autumn DH and friend cut it down. It was a big job and there seemed to be as much below ground as there was above. Here is just a small piece of it.
I suppose it will be a Yule log of sorts as one of our neighbours has taken the wood to use in his log burning fire.
Here's our fire place with a gas fire so the log is no use to us.
I am linking my Advent Garland to KC's Court again this year for a really Advent Bloggy Christmas.
