A 40ft STRAW GOAT!

The Yule goat’s origins date back to ancient Pagan festivals. A popular theory is that the goat is connected to worship of the Norse god Thor, who rode the sky in a chariot drawn by two goatsanta! 

Every year, cities and towns throughout Sweden build large statues of Yule goats. The most famous one is the goat in Gävle. The goat is built on the first day of Advent in late November or early December and intended to stand for the holiday season as a part of Yule celebrations. Almost every year, pranksters damage or burn down the Gävle goat before celebrations can even start! The town doesn’t give up though and keeps trying to find ways to protect the goat, including guards, fencing, making it flame resistant, and even spraying it with water so it would freeze and be more difficult to light!

A recent popular Christmas prank is to make a Yule goat out of straw or wood and then place it in a neighbor’s house without them noticing; the family that was pranked then had to get rid of it in the same way.
