Julbock Survives!!

The famous Gävle goat from Gävle, Sweden has survived to Christmas eve.  The tradition in Sweden has been to erect a Christmas goat and the corresponding tradition for the youth of Gävle has been to light it on fire before Christmas eve (when Swedes celebrate Christmas).  The past several years, the goat has been treated with flame retardant, yet the youth have prevaled.  Somehow this year, the goat has survived.    More info is at  http://www.visitgavle.se/sv/gavlebocken
