As is a bit of tradition, the Gävle Goat was burnt on the night of Dec. 12th by mischeif makers. This is always a touch bitter sweet for me. While I do want to see the goat burnt, I would like it to survive through the Yuletide, and maybe even until New Year’s. From the blog, it doesn’t seem as if they are going to be building a second one. Hail, Gävlebocken, you are a beloved icon and we’ll see you again next year!
