Yule Log

Burning a yule log in the fire is a holiday tradition in Britain and other parts of Europe, but it's actually a fun thing to do during any season.  You'll find everything you need in the great outdoors - no need to bring anything from home!

a small log or branch, suitable for burning in your campfire
and anything else you find that can go into your campfire (no plastic or metal)

Lay your log down flat and use your leaves and flowers to decorate it however you like.  If you have vines, these can act as string to hold things on.  If there aren't any vines, long dandelion and other flower stems can work just as well.  That night, when your fire is going well, toss your yule log into the fire while you make a wish for the coming year.
