I wonder if Thor is right here, as yule log is possibly west germanic (French, British) tradition and Thor is an north germanic (norse) god. Traditions had been split some 1000 years before time of sagas and traditions were hardly similar anymore, as there was no institution to keep beliefs similar. Corresponding west germanic god would have been known as Donor (Thunor/Thunar/Thuner) and he was propably worshipped differently than norse Thor, especially as yule log is not a nordic tradition.
