One of the best parts of the holiday season, and the winter months in general, is curling up next to a roaring fire in your fireplace. It’s the perfect way to get into the festive spirit and warm yourself up.
But for those who don’t have fireplaces in their homes, there are ways to replicate the experience. Netflix and many other streaming services have created virtual Yule Logs and fireplaces to allow viewers to at least get the audio and visual experience of a toasty fire.
There are plenty of options available online for those who want to have a fireplace crackling merrily along in the background while reading a book or wrapping presents, but Netflix has a surprisingly broad range of options; some even include Christmas music!
Does Netflix have a Yule Log?
Yes! Netflix actually has several “yule log” options. You can select from a birchwood fire, a wood-burning fireplace with Christmas songs playing in the background, an old-fashioned fireplace sans music, or even a fireplace from The Witcher universe!
The majority of fireplace options are from the Fireplace for Your Home collection, and they include the following options:
- Crackling Yule Log Fireplace set to holiday favorites like “Joy to the World” and “We Wish You a Merry Christmas”
- Crackling Fireplace is an old-fashioned wood-burning fireplace with no added music beyond the soothing sounds of a real crackling fire
- Crackling Fireplace with Music – Instead of holiday tunes, this one features a “tasteful accompaniment of music” to set the mood
- Fireplace for Your Home: Birchwood Edition
- The Witcher: Fireplace keeps Witchers warm in the Great Hall of Kaer Morhen
The best part of the Fireplace for Your Home collection is that Netflix offers them in 4K UHD so you can appreciate crystal-clear, high-definition warmth this holiday season.
Are you planning to use any of Netflix’s fireplace offerings this year?
