Merry Christmas From Patch!

Who remembers WPIX's Yule Log? We do!


If you grew up in the late 1960s and '70s anywhere that picked up WPIX-TV out of New York City, then you certainly remember the Yule Log.

Video of the roaring fire in the fireplace would begin airing on Christmas Eve and stay on right through Christmas Day.

According to Wikipedia, "The Yule Log was created in 1966 by Fred M. Thrower, President and CEO of WPIX, Inc."

We thought it would be fun to revive this fond memory for so many of us.

Merry Christmas from Patch!

Do you remember the Yule Log?

Did anybody notice that the Yule Log was being offered on a PPV channel. I think the cost was $4.95. It's unbelievable how some people will try to make money off a tradition that has brought much joy to those of us that grew up with the Yule Log on free TV. I'm glad I have my memories which don't cost me anything. Shame on those people that commercialize similar things. What's next, not being able to greet a friend or loved one with "Merry Christmas"? Oh that's right we can't even do that because the politically correct say we have to keep church and state separate. What a bunch of whooie! Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanza, and Happy New Year everybody!

I made the same comment on 12/25 am. I saw the PPV ad on Christmas Eve. Terrible. Freddie
