Chocolate Yule Log

Yule or Yuletide (“Yule time”) is a religious festival observed by the historical Germanic and some neighboring peoples, later being absorbed into the Christian festival of Christmas. 

Similar terms to Yule are used in Nordic countries to mean Happy (Good) Christmas; for example, Hyvää Joulua in Finnish and God Jul in Swedish (‘J’ being pronounced as ‘Y’ in both countries.
The Yule Log was originally a really big log which would burn in the fireplace over the whole Christmas period. Later it was largely replaced by much smaller logs being used as decorations, and then as a chocolate log-shaped cake to be eaten at Christmas.
Yule Singing equates to Christmas Caroling.
