Yule Log Tradition Continues

Our Yule Log

We were delighted with the turnout at last Friday’s Yule Log Tea! It was such a joyful hour filled with friendship, laughter…and cake!

Our festivities began with a meet and greet, in which friends were able to connect with each other, some for the first time in a year or more. All watched as the decorated Yule Log (specially selected from a large, fallen tree on the BA’s property) was placed carefully in the fireplace by two BA employees. After the lighting of our Yule Log, there was plenty of Buche de Noel (a log-shaped, cream-filled cake covered in icing) and tea for everyone.

The BA has been holding its annual Yule Log Tea for over five years now. The Yule Log tradition did not start with the BA, though. For hundreds of years people have been celebrating the coming of light back into the world after the long, dark days of winter by burning specially-chosen logs. According to a treasured tradition, as long as the Yule Log continues to burn, the celebration goes on — and all unnecessary work is put on hold.

We hope you will join us during next year’s Tea.
