Arson as a Christmas Tradition: The Gävle Goat

In Gävle, Sweden, every year they build Gävlebocken, an enormous traditional Swedish Christmas straw goat. And every year, someone tries to burn it down. Here’s to holiday traditions.

THANKS TO: Axel Wickman, @axelwickm on Twitter, for the post-burning photos of the goat from this morning!
