So the Strawgoat was burnt down 3 hours after it was in place, so they built a new smaller one called, "The little Brother" and a couple of hours ago it was smashed by car.

From what I understand it is a "custom" to burn it down...strange custom but I believe that is what I read....let me dig. (Sorry if that is what is in the video. I am at work and unable to watch)

Gavlebocken, we hardly knew ye. Truly.

Every year for Advent, the town of Gavle, Sweden, builds a giant Christmas goat out of straw. And every year, arsonists do their best to bring it down.

This time, despite high-tech cameras and two security guards, the goat didn't even last a full 24 hours.

I guess it is an unwanted custom. It's a shame to see them put that much money in effort into something that they are just going to burn.

It became a tradition, in a strange way. Its become like a game, cat and mouse.
