The Christmas Goat

photo by flickr user PlastAnka

Here in New Jersey we have Dominick the Christmas Donkey, but every year since 1966 in Gävle, Sweden, they erect a 42 foot Christmas Goat in the center of town.   The goat is made of straw and takes about two days to put the straw on the frame.  It has been set on fire by arsonists over 20 times, often rebuilt immediately just to be torched again.   The locals see it as a problem, but since it’s become a major tourist attraction, they look the other way.
