It’s the most wonderful time of the year! And I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than to cozy up to a fire, read a good book and enjoy a hot cup of cocoa.
The only problem is that I don’t have a fireplace. If you’re in the same situation, don’t worry. There is always a solution to be found on the interweb.
While searching for holiday music channels on YouTube, I recently stumbled upon a treasure trove of yule log videos. So, to wish you all a very happy holiday season, I’ve compiled a list of my favourite virtual yule logs for your viewing and listening pleasure. Enjoy!
1. Michael Bublé personally wishes you happy holidays in this 30-minute yule log video which features a beautiful roaring fire, along with his easy-listening holiday tunes playing in the background.
2. I call this one “creepy cat wheezes while you relax in front of a modern fireplace.” Ok, so the cat is not that creepy. And it looks like he is really enjoying himself. But if you look away for a while and then turn back to look at the cat, you might feel like he just keeps on getting closer and closer to your screen. Well, at least that is what I observed. There is no music in this one, just the crackling of the fire and purring of the happy cat.
3. This yule log video features holiday music with fake falling snowflakes. I know, it’s a little bit on the on the cheesy side. But I do enjoy it from time to time. The faux snow gives it a more “White Christmas-ey” feel. My toddler son also really likes this one. So, it’s going on the list. Deal with it.
4. Watch a crackling fireplace for two hours non-stop. Need I say more about this one? In fact, there are lots of these videos on YouTube. Just choose your favourite one.
I hope you enjoy this compilation of virtual fireplace videos that I have shared for your viewing and listening pleasure. They won’t keep you warm. But at least you can enjoy the glow from your TV, tablet or laptop and feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside. Happy holidays and I’ll see you in the New Year!
