Yule Log

“WPIX, Channel 11 in New York, began the tradition of a televised Yule Log back in 1966. Fred Thrower, the station’s general manager at the time, had a real flair for Christmas. Fireplaces, a symbol of warmth and holiday cheer, were hard to come by in the city. Since NYC was crowded with apartments, he thought about the many people who wouldn’t be able to cherish the joyful experience that a Christmas fireplace brings.”
