You won’t burn your fingers with injury claims lawyers in Littlehampton
Littlehampton is a seaside town in West Sussex. At this time of the year, we love to go out to cosy pubs which have real fires and sip red wine while eating a hearty, home cooked dish. The logs on the fire might remind you of the old custom of the Yule Log. This was popular until Queen Victoria and Prince Albert popularised the Christmas tree.
The Yule Log has both Scandinavian and Celtic origins. The Scandinavians would burn a huge log in honour of the God Thor during the feast of Juul at the time of the winter solstice. The Celts, on the other hand, burned a perpetual fire which was considered sacred. It had to be kept in until Twelfth night.
The Christian church also embraced the Yule Log stating that it had to be one of ash wood as that was what the shepherds used beside the infant Jesus when he was first washed and dressed. The reason for using ash was that it was the only wood that would burn well while it was still green. Furthermore, it did become the traditional wood for the Yule Log in England. In Scotland, it was usually birch.
All was right with the world
A Yule Log was usually chosen for its size as it had to burn for many days and so you would choose the biggest one your fireplace would take. The bringing in of the huge log and placing it in the hearth in the baronial hall in Feudal times was a ceremony which all looked forward to on Christmas Eve. The Yule Log was looked upon with such importance that when it was being transported folks seeing it would raise their hats to it. People knew that the huge piece of wood would heat the hall and also the liquor in the wassail bowl which they would share. When the warmth of the fire and the heat of the alcohol got into those medieval insides, they found that at that moment in time all was right with the world; that was the power of the Yule Log.
