The Christmas Goat is back again, Fréttablaðið reports, ready to face whatever the elements and aspiring arsonists may throw its way.
The Christmas Goat at the IKEA in Garðabær/Hafnarfjörður, borrowed from the Swedish Gävle Goat tradition, has long suffered at the hands of arsonists and Iceland’s characteristic high winds. Last year, it survived the holidays intact, but this has been the exception to the norm.
If you were looking for something to start a betting pool over, we would give 5:1 odds that the Christmas goat survives the holiday season.
