What exactly is a Yule log? Is it different then any other fire in the fireplace? I only ask because this is something we've never done?

When pagans voluntarily converted to Christianity they kept some of their traditions and applied different meanings to the tradition. The same thing is happening today, many non-christians celebrate christmas (the celebration of Christs birth) in a purely secular form. People don't like to give up the things that comfort them so they recycle, I think it is a very green thing to do.
I know people who aren't Mexican but always have a pinata at birthday parties. I'm sure we can all think of some cross-over traditions, there is nothing wrong with it. For most people a yule log is just a fire in your fireplace on christmas and has no other significance. Personally, I eat mine.
