How Long Will the Gävle Goat Last in 2017?

Every year, the residents fo Gävle, Sweden, erect a giant Yule goat made of straw for Christmas. And almost every year, the goat becomes the victim of arson. The first goat, erected in 1966, was burned on New Years Day. Last year, the goat didn't even last one full day. You can look back at the fate of all the Gävle Goats here. And now the 2017 Gävle Goat has risen, 13 meters tall and 7 meters long, in the Gävle town square. You can keep up with the Gävle Goat at the Gävlebocken‏ Twitter feed. -via Metafilter
