Mantel Christmas decorations ideas existed centuries ago since the fireplace was the most important place in the family life. There is a custom that on Christmas Eve an enormous log, called the Yule log, would be solemnly carried to the house and the master of the house would put it into the fireplace saying the prayers and sprinkling the log with oil, salt and mulled wine. The youngest of the children in the family would lit the log. It was believed that the cinders of the Yule log could protect the house from the malevolent powers. This custom dates back in time and is popular in most Europeans countries. Today smaller logs are placed on the tables as Christmas decorations.
