We’ve discussed The Sad, Twisted Tale of the Gävle Christmas Goat here before. For those who could use a refresher, the Gävle Goat is a 13-meter (42+ feet) tall straw structure that’s built in the center of Gävle, Sweden at Christmastime every year:
For some reason, the poor straw goatie usually ends up in flames before the Christmas season is over . . . which is why I was so excited when my friend Annika, who lives in Gävle, sent me this photo today — a perfect example of Goatspotting:
Why yes, this is one super smily Swedish goat.
Our guess is that this is because he’s made of cement and would, therefore, be rather difficult to set afire.
Now if only he could lend some of his cement to the Christmastime goatie . . . .
Remember if you’re out and about and spot a goat, snap a photo and send it on in for Goatspotting!
