The Yule Log is currently not available on Directv. Sources suggest that when it is available, it will be on the Holiday and Happenings channel which is on 801 and 815.
The custom of burning the Yule Log goes back to, and before, medieval times. The Yule Log was originally an entire tree, that was carefully chosen and brought into the house with great ceremony. Find out more about the history of the Yule Log here.
