Every Christmas my family displays our Julbock (Yule Goat) - a straw goat that is commonly displayed in Scandinavia during Yuletide. Displaying the Julbock is a tradition that dates back before Christianity arrived in Scandinavia. The goat symbol comes from the worship of the Norse God Thor and his two goats, Tanngnjost och Tanngrisner, that pulled his flying chariot, and the straw that it is made from celebrates the harvest.

These ornaments are 3.5x3.5 inches, and are made out of beautiful Cherry plywood.
