Since 1966 live television has been featuring the video playback of a fireplace filled with crackling wood and a never ending supply of Holiday music streaming for hours on end for your pleasure. So you don't have a chimney to burn the Ole Yule Log in - no worries... with the playback you can turn your television chimney on and off with the flick of the remote.

The burning of a Yule Log (a piece of hard wood) in the fireplace has been a European tradition associated with Christmas and winter solstice celebrations for several centuries. The log has been immortalized in several holiday songs like the '12 Days of Christmas' and has been airing on TV since 1966.

For the digital version, viewers can light up the Yule Log on any computer or mobile device simply by clicking on:
