Long ago in France, a huge log was placed in the fireplace after being blessed to protect the house and its inhabitants. It was sometimes sprinkled with oil or wine as an offering, and then burned for the occasion of Christmas Eve. In some regions, the log had to be big enough to smolder overnight and even up to Epiphany day, twelve days later. The symbolic cake substituting the wood log quickly became a success and tradition changed from a real log to the classic Yule log!
