Enjoy the Christmas glow... any way you can!
I remember the first time I went to friend’s house on Christmas Day and saw The Yule Log burning on their TV. I couldn’t imagine why in the world they tuned the channel in to what was nothing more than a single shot of a fireplace in full blaze and, and if memory serves me right, occasionally a random hand would appear from the side of the shot and a log would be added and the flames tended to when necessary.
“This is stupid”, I thought to myself… then came a lull came in the action and I found myself sitting alone in the room where the Christmas tree was, with the smell of dinner wafting through the house and I found myself transfixed on the warm glow and comforting sound of The Yule log that was burning on the TV!
As of, I’d say 3-4 years ago, the Yule Log was a thing of the past, but I bring you good news artificial fireplace fans: The Yule log is back – and better than ever!
If you’re a Time Warner cable subscriber, you’ll have access to video of a fireplace burning with a dog sitting in a chair. It’s simple, but people seem to like it.
Time Warner is offering it in Standard Definition, High Definition, and even 3D, with its Video On Demand selections.
Don’t worry. If you don’t have Time Warner, you can still get some Yule Log action online at WatchYuleLog.com.
That’s what we’ll be doing as complete tech sell-outs this year: tuning into the Yule Log on the IPad… but whatever makes your holiday better or warmer or more peaceful, I say do it.
This is the time of year when mircales come true and peace to me is a gift I suggest you give to yourself this year.
From my family to yours: Merry Christmas, and enjoy the glow (even if it is from a digital fireplace).
