In recent Christmases there has been a trend of Yule Log Videos. You know, as a way to get you in the Christmas mood and if you don’t have a fireplace you can have one on your computer.
One particular video combines Christmas music, a yule log and Jimmy Dean Sausages cooking. It lasts 11 hours! And at the end there was a coupon for sausages!
People are “eating it up”, sorry for the pun. Their kids fall asleep watching the video, they comment online about how long does it actually take to cook sausages properly and it has become a tradition for some families, oh my!
