In Pagan tradition emphasis was placed on light and heat the Yule log was a Norse custom and burning of the Yule was a celebration of the sun during the winter months, most ancient superstitions surrounding Yuletide were concerned with the darkness and the evil, it was thought to harbour, many superstitious people keep a piece on the log from the previous year, as a lucky talisman.

According to tradition it was extremely unlucky for a barefooted woman or a squint eyed man to see the yule log and a flat footed visitor to the house whilst the log was burning was a very bad omen, keeping Christmas cake or the remains of the Yule Log under the bed was also thought to help get rid of chilblains, the log has subsequently influenced other Christmas traditions including desserts such as log shaped cakes.
