Regional Yule Log Celebrations


Join William & Mary alumni, parents, family and friends around the world as we share in this beloved holiday tradition!

Every December, the William & Mary community celebrates new beginnings with Yule Log ceremonies. This holiday tradition began in the 1930s and has been part of the William & Mary experience for generations of alumni. The cares and worries of the year burn away with the holly in the Yule fire, and our community — on campus and around the world — comes together with shared hope for the future.

Share your Yule Log experience using #wmyulelog.

Yule Log ceremonies worldwide are made possible by the W&M Alumni Association Fund, which directly supports the activities of William & Mary regional networks, as well as Homecoming & Reunion Weekend, inclusion initatives, career networking and professional events and more!
