Trivia

When WPIX brought back "The Yule Log" in 2001 after an 11 year absence from the airwaves, the producers wanted to visually clean up the image. The 35mm footage shot in California in 1970 was thought to be lost until it was found in WPIX's New Jersey storage warehouse in a film can marked "The Honeymooners - A Dog's Life." See more »

Best of the season!

It's not Christmas at my house without the Yule Log! I remember as a boy, living in Jersey City--no fireplaces here-watching the log & listening to the great music every Christmas Eve. The Log would be a background for my family's Christmas celebrations, as well as giving us excellent holiday tunes while we were opening presents. I was saddened when it was pulled from the air (during the 80's?), but was amazed when I found a great group of "loggers" online the past few years. The past few years, the log has returned due to overwhelming demand. Some might say it's corny, but to me, it's not Christmas without the WPIX Yule Log. Hopefully they will have it on again this year!
