The Gavleboken is UP and BLOGGING!!!! 2010 WOOO!

Sorry - I just cannot contain my happiness.

He's back he's back, the goat is baaaaack!!!!

And - here is his superawesome BLOG!

So far we have learned that...

  • His horns and beard are very important to him, and that this year, he will have 16 lights on each horn!!
  • He is 44 years old this year.
  • Lucia is a tradition celebrated December 13 in Sweden.
  • One of the performers who played as he was dedicated was from Ace of Base!
  • Check out the webcam (maybe he'll wave at you).

And now the best part - I got an email recently from Sweden with info on how to order my very own baby goat and support the guards who help keep the piros away. Yes, you need to buy one of these:

and the money will go towards protecting the goat from getting flamed.

Please write to turist "@" to get instructions on how to forward money to the tourism board and tell them where to send your baby goat! It costs 230 Swedish crowns.
