Here is the famous WPIX Christmas Day Yule Log video in a long loop for your enjoyment. Relax with the sounds of a crackling fireplace, or check out the video below for a version with Christmas music instead.
The Yule Log was created in 1966 by Fred M. Thrower, President and CEO of WPIX, Inc. Inspired by an animated Coca-Cola commercial a year earlier that showed Santa Claus at a fireplace, he envisioned this television program as a televised Christmas gift to those residents of "The Big Apple" who lived in apartments and homes without fireplaces. This also provided time for employees of the TV station to stay home with their families, instead of working for the usual morning news program.
