Decorate at Goat for Christmas?

A holiday tradition in the city of Gävle, Sweden, involves the people there building a 40-foot statue of a goat made out of straw in the town square.

For the last 10 years, John Oman of Moyock, North Carolina, had a Christmas tradition of watching the townspeople build this Gävle Goat each year -- and each year he would vow to build his own.

Three years ago, John finally got around to it. He actually built a giant straw goat, decorated in lights and red ribbons, in his yard.

John’s goat is “only” nine feet tall -- and when he lights it up after Thanksgiving, he throws a party that draws around 60 of his neighbors.

Throughout the holiday season, the goat shines brightly for the neighborhood and passing traffic, creating a unique connection between two cities, one in North Carolina and one in Sweden. (Pilot Online)
