A Yule Log

I was washing the lunch dishes when I heard singing coming from the back garden.

The Happy Wanderer

I looked out the window and saw six gnomes valiantly rolling a log towards the back door. Sometime later, Henri finally brought it inside.

“Madame, nous vous présentons le Yule Log!”

“It’s perfect for our Winter Solstice celebration! Thank you so much!” (I guess they forgot I do not have a fireplace.) After all their hard work, I made a large pot of hot chocolate for everyone. 🙂

  1. Hot Chocolate; the Gnomes know how much you love their company and they want to get away from the rain and winter cold. Sitting around the Yule log singing, you will have to wait until Spring before they return to their garden duties. What are they singing?

      1. “The log burned for 12 days.” Ha, really? Like the Hanukkah oil burning 8 days? So… it’s actually the Hanukkah Solstice! No chocolate cake – aww! I’ll settle for sufganiot (jelly donuts) then! 😀
