The Yule Log Tradition Continues


It was a big success last year on my blog, so let's do it again and begin a tradition. Here is the famous "Yule Log," that has been a staple of WPIX-TV here in New York for many years. It debuted in 1966, left the air for a few years in the 1990s, but popular demand brought it back to the air. It will be on TV at 9 AM on Christmas morning (and it will be followed by the classic film, "March of the Wooden Soldiers" of course). Unfortunately I have no music for you to enjoy.

So here is the second annual Mighty Quinn Media Machine Yule Log. I hope you enjoy the crackling fire anyway. Have a Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas, John! Can't wait to put on the new Ellsbury shirt my folks sent me!

The Omnipotent Q said...

Merry Christmas, Matty. And I can't wait to use my new Red Sox wallet, key chain and long sleeve t-sirt, too!

Peter N said...

Wow, with all those great Sox presents, we're solidly in the very middle of RSN. Ain't that great!!!

Gee, I wish our cable system still carried PIX. I remember having that on in the background years ago.

And I wish someone around here would carry the movie, too.

Merry Christmas, Q.

It's what I love most about Christmas, Suldog. Sorry you couldn't get a chance to see the Yule Log or March of the Wooden Soldiers. I guess traditions have always meant a lot to me.

Happiest of holidays to you, Suldog and Peter.

In '04, I thought, "I know what I'm getting for Xmas this year..." Yet for some reason, I got no Red Sox stuff that year. (People must've noticed that I pretty much bought it all myself.) But this year, it was like a 90 per cent Red Sox present rate. Go figure.

Thanks for the Yule Log! I miss seeing it up here out of PIX land. Hey, do you remember those video games they used to show where a kid would call up and say PIX over and over again to drop bombs or throw footballs or whatever?

My pleasure to present the Yule Log, Jere.

I vaguely remember that "PIX" thing with the videos. I guess it happened a little while after I was into video games. I'm getting on in years...
