Daily Ideas for Christmas from Your Ancestors -22 - Burn A Yule Log With The Family!

Create a 'Circle of Glee'!


While the Christmas Log is Burning!

Hail to the night when we gather once more
All the forms we love to meet;
When we've many a guest that's dear to our breast:
And the household dog at out feet.
Who would not be in the circle of glee; 
When heart to heart is yearning -
When joy breathes out in the laughing about
While the Christmas log is burning!
