Happy Solstice!

Yep, apparently there's a huge straw goat that gets built every year in a place called Gävle in Switzerland. And every year, for the last few anyways, hooligans set it alight!

Want to catch the hooligans then be sure to keep watch at this webcam. Or you can follow the Gävle Goat on Twitter or Instagram. Even read about the goat's thoughts and wishes on its blog (there's an English translation for every post).

You can even, maybe, find some straw and build your own!

UPDATE - Jan 1, 2015 - The goat survived and will be going to China for the Year of Goat celebrations in February!
