Apologies for my Northern Hemispheric bias.

Alas, I cannot, for all the meaning of this piece is lost. I can appreciate that humanizing the log might make it harder to burn because of all the ravenous feelings that push against one's human shell.

Time for some midvinterblot? (The ritual not the painting)

Indeed! I'm so hungry I could eat a horse.

I always make eye contact as I set the Yule ablaze.

"If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about burning them? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason." -paraphrase of Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey

My housemate put up the 'Io Saturnalia' banner last night. And I'm getting ready to pull the unadorned aluminum pole out of the attic.

You monster! Have you no respect for the howling soul that is sent up for our mere traditions?! D:

I have to ask though... why the gloves? Have I been doing it wrong all these years?

What ever you do with your log in the privacy of your home and/or hearth is your business.
I don't judge but must warn you that yule log bites can be very infectious.

Wow. I didn't know that the post-burning splinters could be so dangerous.

It looks like my Mom was wrong after all when she said I was just being a big old baby.

I hope it only fizzles this year. I hate it when they scream and writhe. Gets ash and embers everywhere.

Idem ad vos.

That's what she said. :D

You should see what I do to the holly.

And the less said about the Christmas tree, the better.

As for the baubles....well, it's not entirely decent.

Or sanitary for that matter.

I find that petrol works just as well as Holiday Spirit. Cheaper too.

I always look into the Yule Logs eyes, to see if they change when it dies. Sadly the flames always obscure them before that happens.

Christmas Trees deserve it. Those bastards have jumped me on many occasions (hanging ornaments for example) and attempted to stab me to death with their needle-leaves or drown me in sap.
