No doubt plenty of us have spent many a holiday evening warming ourselves by the reassuring glow of a Yule log, perpetually burning away on some local cable access channel. As far as we’re concerned, it’s the perfect answer to a holiday fire — all the holiday cheer, none of the mess and hassle of trying to set a log on fire inside your house — which if we’re being honest, always seemed rather dangerous and counter-intuitive to us. That’s not to say the tradition of watching the Yule log pop and crackle on the TV set isn’t due for an update. After all, who the heck has a TV set these days? This year, give this all digital Yule log — designed by animator Nigel Upchurch — a shot at warming your heart, if not necessarily your hearth.
