Many peoples rejoiced during the winter solstice, when the worst of the winter season lagged them and they could look forward to longer days and extended hours of sunlight.In Scandinavia, the Norse commemorated Yule from December 21, the winter season solstice, through January. In recognition of the return of the sun, daddies and kids would bring house large logs, which they would set on fire.

The people would feast up until the log burned out, which might take as many as 12 days. The Norse believed that each spark from the fire represented a brand-new pig or calf that would be born during the coming year.
