The Gävle Goat is Back!

Sweden is celebrating the beginning of the Christmas season in the traditional way -with the Gävle Goat! Every year since 1966 the people of Gävle, Sweden, erect a huge straw goat for Christmas. We’ve covered the ups and downs of the goat over the years, when it sometimes comes to a bad end. 

The goat for 2015 is up, and the goat’s Twitter account (in both Swedish and English) has been activated. How long will it last? You can keep tabs on the goat with a live camera feed. -via Metafilter
