Be Careful What You Burn
Everyone loves a Yule log, right? Riiiiight. At least try something different this year, with one of these alternative logs. They burn cleaner than the petroleum-bound logs you're used to, helping you to breathe easy, because they're made from recycled materials held together by natural, renewable wax. Put that in your fireplace and smoke it.
