Thanks for the excellent article concerning the National Park Service’s discontinuation of the yule log tradition near the National Christmas Tree at President’s Park [“Ye Olde Yule Log blazes no more,” Style, Dec. 24]. 

I was left cold — figuratively and literally — when I recently took out-of-town visitors there to experience the warmth of American community that the National Christmas Tree and Ye Olde Yule Log represent. 

I have petitioned the Park Service to reinstate the tradition, and I hope that The Post’s article will prompt many others to do the same.
