Welcome fellow party goers. I apologize for my tardiness, but family matters and work took president yesterday and I was unable to post as I wished too. I hope that you will still enjoy my post regarding our Yule Tree.
In November we were lucky enough to come across a Christmas Tree outing for four for only $35! I couldn't believe it! In the package was a 6 foot tree, 2 s'mores, a hayride for 4, access to their petting zoo, and slide rides for kids. We don't have any kids, so just the the Mortician and I went on a Thursday afternoon when NO ONE was there.
Normally they require at least 10 people for the hayride, but the owner took the two of us out anyway to feed the cows. I love cows.
This is the first time in my life that I have ever had a real tree and I have to say I am excited. We finally get to cut our first Yule log, which I am looking forward to in the coming weeks.
Traditionally, the Yule Log is cut from the past year's tree or from the same location as the tree and burned on Yule or as part of Christmas to honor the God and bring good luck in the coming year. A piece of the log is saved to kindle the fire for the next year's holiday fire.
Do you have a live or artificial tree? Do you partake in the Yule Log tradition?
