By

Now that you’re equipped with proper audio, let’s look at the visual. Whether you’re looking for a seasonal image for your holiday party, or just something to stare at while you ponder the meaning of egg nog, a yule log can help make any scene more festive. But playing with fire can be dangerous, as it poses the risk of smoke inhalation, can be tricky to extinguish, and attracts bears. For those looking for a safer alternative, we’ve created our very own yule log scene, perfect for playing on any screen that’s not currently showing a college football game. Enjoy the glow without getting burned.
