and at no point has anyone thought “maybe we should not build a giant flammable goat this year”
"At this time of year, the residents of Gävle, Sweden have one big question on their minds: Will the goat burn?"
I remember a year when it didn’t burn down to the ground and my family and I decided to make our own smaller version and burn that one. It felt like a sacrifice to the yulegoat. Without it burning, it does not feel like Christmas. Without it burning, Sweden will fall.
It needs to burn, it really needs to burn
