Boars Head Yule Log Celebration

Marjorie P. Lee kicked off the new year with a bang, celebrating the end of the Christmas season in style with the 74th Annual Boar's Head Yule Log Celebration at Christ Church Cathedral.

The Boar's Head is the oldest continuing festival of the Christmas season rooted in ancient times when the boar was a ferocious beast, sovereign of the forest—a staple on the medieval banquet table—that came to symbolize the triumph of the Christ child over evil as Christian beliefs spread throughout Europe.  The festival as we know it today originated at Queen’s College in Oxford and has evolved into today’s pageant, including about 200 participants from actors, to lighting and sound crews, choir and orchestra members, and many more.

 

It was certainly a memorable experience, and there are certain to be many more to come in 2014.
