Yule Log: Crafting Class

Saturday December 17
2-3:30 pm
Cost: $25 (includes materials)
Please register by Sunday December 11

The Yule log was originally burned during a pagan holiday called Yule. Adopted by Christianity, it was then burned on a hearth as a way of celebrating Christmas in Europe. People believed that burning the log would bring prosperity in the coming year. Yule logs also expanded into new traditions and conformed to a more modern world. Whichever tradition or religion is practiced, the burning of the Yule log continues.

Today we enjoy the Yule Log as a holiday decoration, adorned with red candles, evergreen tips and wild red berries.  Join us today to create your own Yule Log and perhaps a new tradition for your own family, however you choose to celebrate the season of peace on earth.
