The Yule Log.com is a World Wide Web tribute
to an annual televised celebration of the Christmas spirit.
The concept of the televised Yule Log is a tradition that originally began in 1966 by New York City's own WPIX-TV.
That famous and glorious 7-minute film loop of that roaring, happy, mesmerizing fire inside that festively decorated mantelpiece complemented by the majesty of some of the greatest classic Christmas music ever recorded is indeed the one and only WPIX Yule Log.
It has often been imitated, but never duplicated.
Celebrating 50 years!
I HAVE PRODUCED A 50TH ANNIVERSARY 5TH HOUR FOR THE YULE LOG; CLICK HERE!
**ALSO: THE ORIGINAL 1966 FOOTAGE HAS BEEN FOUND IN THE ARCHIVES AND WILL AIR IN A SPECIAL 1-HOUR PRESENTATION ON CHRISTMAS EVE AND ENCORE ON CHRISTMAS DAY; CLICK HERE.

The Yule Log telecast was expanded to a 4-hour program in 2009 when I added a new fourth hour! For details, Click Here.
The video posted below is the WPIX-TV station ID break from the 2009 presentation of the Yule Log. In the clip, station news anchors Jim Watkins and Kaity Tong announce the premiere of the new fourth hour of the Yule Log and pay homage to yours truly, Chip Arcuri. Thanks Jim and Kaity for the nice shout-out and for your support and enthusiasm for our great Christmas tradition, The WPIX Yule Log!
