Thank you both! I will add them tomorrow with the next update.
In terms of the Yule Log tradition here is a quote:
The custom of burning the Yule Log goes back to, and before, medieval times. It was originally a Nordic tradition. Yule is the name of the old Winter Solstice festivals in Scandinavia and other parts of northern Europe, such as Germany.
The Yule Log was originally an entire tree, that was carefully chosen and brought into the house with great ceremony. The largest end of the log would be placed into the fire hearth while the rest of the tree stuck out into the room! The log would be lit from the remains of the previous year's log which had been carefully stored away and slowly fed into the fire through the Twelve Days of Christmas. It was considered important that the re-lighting process was carried out by someone with clean hands. Nowadays, of course, most people have central heating so it is very difficult to burn a tree!
So, what I have seen for a while is this tradition continuing to TV (e.g. a station broadcasting a log burning for 24 hours, etc.) Of course, now there are YouTube versions of this and there was a Hearthstone version also (now available on YouTube also.)
So continuing in this tradition, this is a C3 version that is always online, but for fun, I've added little creatures that scurry around while the fire is burning and it's just nice to collaborate with other C3 devs and artists on a little project. In addition I'm updating it by updating the itch website (and also am using Playfab for at least a message of the day, so I can update a countdown and perhaps adjust some of the fire parameters via LiveOps...)
