Christmas Lore

Christmas Elf

The tradition of burning a Yule log actually has its roots in ancient Scandinavia. Supposedly the Yule log was a source of good luck and its remnants were saved to inspire good fortune throughout the year. It was such a widely held belief that people even threw the ashes in wells to make the water safer to drink.

Christmas Fact:  During the Christmas/Hanukkah season, more than 1.76 billion candy canes will be made.
