To One and All, Merry Christmas
I want to wish all of my friends, family and readers of The Mighty Quinn Media Machine a very Merry Christmas, wherever you are. Once again my gift to you, the burning Yule Log, which I put on the side of this blog a few weeks ago. "The Yule Log" is a tradition that started here on New York television back in the mid-1960s on WPIX-TV, and they would have the log burning in a continuous loop as Christmas music played in the background. It became extremely popular on Christmas Eve, but in the late 1990s they made the wrongheaded decision to take it off, and after many folks complained about it, it was brought back on Christmas mornings, and this year it will run from 9AM to 1 PM.
"The Yule Log" is one of those things I love about this season, my favorite time of year. (And the classic film "March of the Wooden Soldiers" always follows it on Channel 11 in the afternoon.)
Merry Christmas everyone.
