The Yule Goat by ImaginaryKarin The Yule Goat by ImaginaryKarin

Despite the best efforts of pre-medieval evangelists, Scandinavian culture is still full of old pagan traditions. One of them is the Yule Goat, an old Christmas/Yule symbol.

There are many theories where it comes from, but its true origin is lost in history. In some traditions the goat is actually the one bringing presents to children instead of Santa, but I don’t think anyone follows that today. All I know is that it’s very common to have goat decorations up during Christmas, usually goat figures made of straw and wrapped in red ribbons.

And I’m still trying to figure out ProMarkers…
