Swedish Scandinavian Yule Goat Tree Ornament
The Yule Goat has traditionally been a symbol representing community and bounty. Rarely is the spirit of these two values more pronounced than during the holiday seasons. In Sweden the Yule goat is regarded as a watchful spirt, over the home, insuring that the holiday preparations were done right, but there is also a mischievous side to this little spirit.
Scandinavian society would use the goat to prank ones friends and family. He would be left at possibly a neighbor's house without them noticing; and the neighboring family, successfully pranked, had to get rid of the little trickster in the same way.
So gather your loved ones together to share in the bounty of your home and of your table this holiday season under the watchful gaze of the Yule goat, but don’t be surprised if he encourages a little mischief around your table this holiday season.
Ornament Measures approximately 3in wide and is made from enamel painted steel, available in red, gold and silver.
