Sweden’s most endangered Christmas decorations burnt, again

The burnt out Christmas goat in Gavle, Sweden, Friday Dec. 17, 2021. In what’s become a Christmas tradition to some Swedes, a giant decorative goat made of straw and a smaller one were set ablaze early and police detained a suspect in his 40s. The straw goat is a beloved Christmas symbol in the city of Gavle, a town 101 miles north of Stockholm. However, it’s also become a tradition of sorts to burn it down. (Pernilla Wahlman/TT via AP)
