Preview: Best videos of burning logs
If you have a fireplace capable of a handling a hearty holiday flame, good for you—but don’t worry, there are still plenty of options to set the mood without creating a fire. The tradition of putting a video of wood flambé on television began in 1966 with a dream and some footage of a New York fireplace. Now, the ubiquitous tradition can be streamed on your platform of choice. YouTube has a number of acceptable options, including some backed with holiday tunes—not advisable. Simply search “yule log,” “log fire 10 hours” or “fire burning”—ignore the Sean Kingston result, or indulge for a new holiday tradition. Netflix also offers three episodes of logs burning in its hit show, Fireplace for Your Home. If you’re a purist though, you can catch two early-morning broadcasts of The Yule Log on your local Fox station. The Yule Log, Wed, 12/25, 4:30am & 8am; Channel 40.
