People look at fireworks at the inauguration of the Gävle Goat in Sweden.

Gavle Goat

It is a giant goat figure made of straw, and is erected each year at the beginning of Advent.

The goat has been burned 26 times since 1966.

Watching Gavle's Goat has become a national pastime in Sweden, where people monitor the goat throughout December with baited breath to see if it will survive. Pic/AFP
