In the words of the Grinch, “Tomorrow is Christmas. It’s practically here!”


At this point, you’ve probably got most of the holiday planned out. You’ve got the menu, the playlist, the gifts, but do you have the Yule Log ready? It’s been a stressful year, and Christmas is a stressful holiday. But a good Yule Log can provide infinite comfort. Of course, not everyone has a real fireplace – at least, not until one magically appears briefly for Santa.




Fortunately, we have the gift of the internet in that case. There are countless virtual Yule Logs to stream, providing hours of relaxing ambiance. Of course, all those options can make a final decision hard, so to make it easier on you, here are 5 of the best!


1. Arendelle Castle Yule Log

No matter how mad you are at Elsa and her impossibly catchy power ballads that have seemingly been stuck in your head for the last four years or so, you can’t deny that there’s a beauty to her home. Now that the gates are finally open full-time in Arendelle, we need to take advantage! Because this means the castle’s Yule log is also open to the public. Streaming on Disney+, the Arendelle Castle Yule Log will have you feeling the opposite ofFrozen, even if it’s only virtual.


2. Toy Story Yule Log

If you’re more of a Pixar lover than Disney, you’re going to want to get the D23 Days of Christmas Yule log rolling. This one is based on Toy Story, complete with a Luxo Ball hanging out among the presents. If you watch with a keen eye, you might see more than a few special visitors




3. Hallmark Channel Yule Log

Christmas isn’t complete without bingeing an absurd amount of Hallmark Christmas movies. Are they all pretty similar? Yes. Are we still going to love watching the big city workaholic fall in love with the small-town Christmas fanatic? Absolutely. But during actual Christmas festivities, it’s a bit hard to fully focus on a movie. Still, you can get your Hallmark fill with their virtual Yule log. As an added bonus, Happy the Cat AND Happy the Dog are part of this one, having a ball in front of the fire.




4. Mystery Science Theater 3000

If you’re looking for something a bit more mysterious, a bit more science-y, then you’re going to want the "Mystery Science Theater 3000" Yule log. This one will even give you a few laughs, with a fun 35-second riff at the beginning of the video.




5. Harry Potter’s Yule Log

There’s an inherent magic to Christmas, but are we really ever going to say no to a bit more magic? No way. So for the family looking for that extra shot of magic, there’s the Wizarding World’s Yule log. This log doesn’t reside in one specific Hogwarts house but represents the best of all the houses.




Merry Christmas, everyone!
