When we think of Christmas, a goat is probably not what we have in mind. But for the
Swedes, a goat is one of their most endearing Yuletide symbols. Called the Gävle Goat,
the Yule Goat is erected every year at the beginning of Advent in Gävle, Sweden. In 1966,
a 13-metre-tall Gävle Goat made of straw was put up in the city’s square, and it has
been a popular Swedish Christmas tradition ever since. I wonder when people will put a
giant straw statue of me?!
Whilst many of us are bundled indoors every Christmas, Aussies Down Under gather
together on the beach with a barbie to grill since Christmastime falls during their
summer season! A surfboard-ridin’ Father Christmas is also known to make an
appearance during the festivities. How cool is that?!
White hair? Check. Friendly smile? Check. Famous and well-loved Christmas symbol? Yes!
But we’re not talking about Santa Claus!
In Japan, Colonel Sanders, the face of Kentucky Fried Chicken, is a popular Yuletide
symbol because the Japanese love to have KFC as part of their Christmas celebration!
The tradition started in 1974 when the fast-food chain began marketing its fried chicken
as a Christmas meal, similar to turkey that Americans have for Thanksgiving. Now that’s
a finger-lickin’ Christmas, right Tim Hague?
