A six-metre tall Swedish Christmas goat was erected yesterday in front of IKEA in Garðabær, as is customary this time of year.
The straw goat is covered in thousands of lights to brighten up the dark days in the lead up to Christmas, Vísir reports.

The following security footage shows the goat burning to the ground in 2010:
