As holiday entertainment goes, it makes those wooden cup-and-ball toys look like an iPad.
It’s hypnotic in its simplicity.
It’s the Yule Log, a 48-minute burst of nostalgia available in the FreeZone of Cox’s on-demand channel. You can even take it with you via rentmoviesondemand.com/yulelog.
A roaring hearth crackles as embers explode and drift out of sight, all while traditional carols play.
There are spinoffs: snow falling on a snowman, snow and a pine forest.
But granddaddy of them all is the Yule Log, which first aired in 1966.
To rip off "Scrooged," another Christmas classic: Yule love it.
