Because. I play, the, Korean, up in the bell, tower people. In the community, of yeah Blair they, said. I'm the man in. The tower. We. Have about 100,000. Inhabitants. For. The moment, we. Have a very. Famous. Hockey. Team, then. They're also very famous goat. In. The Christmas time I look, out, of the window, and, I will be inspired, when I say that the goat, you, know a. Couple of years ago there was a man. From United. States he, he he, thought it was okay to and burned them the goat so. He put fire on the goat and and then. He got, to. Yale. But. I think it should be a shame you know. Dog. The, Christmas Gold is representing. A tradition. A. Proudness. A, piece. Of, happiness. In. A dark, dark. Time. It. Started, as a marketing. Strategy, and became. Successful. So. The. Year after, they build it again and. I. Think because. It was burnt the first year. It. Meant. Something, and the. Last 50, years the goat has been burned for. 29. Times. The. Goat has a, long history and. Many, years of, course, not. So happy. History. A lot. Of accidents, once. It was a car, driving, down the, goat. Once. It was a santa clauss who. Jump in to, the goat and, get it to, fire, I'm. The mayor of yeah, black commune, and, I. Think when the. Goat burns, down, I can. Feel in the whole town that. The people are said. They. Don't talk, to each other in, the bus in the morning and. I. Can't. Explain, why, they are doing it. Sometimes. I think they. Are drunk and don't. Think it Oh blue sometimes. I, think perhaps. It's money because. You can bet on the goat, and. I think that is awful. The. Last goat, builder, he was, allergic. To the straw, so. Then they came, to me and asked me if I wanna build it. We. Start in August. When. We buy some wood. And. After. That we start to build, a skeleton. From. The last horrors, there we, take the straw because it's the best it's. Fresh and. Fresh. And nice. I. Have, a bill, to go three, times and. Twice. Its pound townn and that. Feels, a very, sad. Because when they burn it down they ruin, the Christmas, feeling for, everybody especially. The, kids. But. Yeah. I don't like. Every. Year in gobbler we are thinking about how to burn, down the goat and. While those town, businessmen. Think it's a tradition. They started, is, not if, something, our sweets have been doing for centuries. The. Build your IKEA shelves, and Christmas, mascots, sip schnapps in your polite society and, drive cautiously through, your sheltered, lives but. Always, know that your, older, self hidden, by the darkness, that is part of you is, waiting, by you. Burn, it all. This, is the darkest. Time in the year in Sweden, the. Sun Goes Down very, early and. Goes. Up very late so it's many. Hours, with our dark here and therefore we need a lot of light and, in. Advent, time we start where tradition, with is, goat, hair in the area so we say we. Tell ourselves, and. All, our people it's. Time to start preparations for, Christmas because. We need a light. People. Were, worshipping. Light in some ways before, Christianity. Because, it was dark, even when. It. Was mean to make people. To. Go more to resolve out of the city for shopping I want, to look at the go to take, a coffee and, shopping, and take. A phone to and it was really success. For. Their they, who run business. We. Make some gingerbread. That, looks like the gold and, I. Think. It's, not. Good. For the shopping when it burned arms. Every. Kids are a little. Bit sad when it first sound because, you have you have connection. To it walking around every day and you, get a happy feeling in your body and also bring. Something more to Christmas and then but, something you talk about when you come home as a kid how. Big it was and how fast, it was and it comes with some kind of myth I don't, know I, don't know how to explain it it's, just. Something. Old, something I. Know. It feels, a little bit like like, us like, the town it's, connected. To us somehow. Burning. The novel. Ago it could be part of a collective, memory. As such. Where. People do. This because it's part of a longer. Tradition. Within. Themselves, to create some sort of balance between this darkness. And light. Because. The Sun is, it's. The source of life without the Sun we cannot access of course it's been important. During, their early. Ages also for the Sun to you to. Return. For. The. Harvests, to even grow. It's. It's, a battle of traditions. Ours. Goes, back to the beginning. Of time when. The gods created our world from fire while. Their cute little custom, was created, by some ad company. Some, 50 years ago to, help sell the capitalist, Christmas, mascot. Every. Year they feel their Trojan, horse and every. Year, they. Are shocked, when Troy, gets burned to the ground. When. I talk to her she'll learn about the cold we, just wait, and see and we hope for it to stand all, the way to Christmas. But, if. It's. Going to happen that someone will burn it down and we talked about it with the kids because, they.
Think. It's sad. It is it that did goat isn't there in Warren. We're. Talking, about doing, right and wrong things, somehow. To. Do. The right thing and what, that is so I tell. Them the story that, long. Ago in Sweden, children. And people, were believing, that it was a goat coming. At, Christmas. With. Presents, and he. Was, banging. On the door then, there was a little bit afraid of him as well because. The. Goat was not always the, nice ones. So. If, if. You've been bad you, don't have any present. I. Think. This goat the survived, only, 12 times of this. 50, years I think. It's only three or four people have been, prosecuted, for this, burning. Down the goat in, the Swedish Criminal, Code Chapter 12. Paragraph, 1 it could be, prison. Up to 40 years, and the. Most common. Penalty. Is fine and the. Fine is about. 80 thousand Swedish crowns. There. Is no possibility. For me to make. A verdict. Beside. The, word we. Follow, the law, nothing, else it's. Not possible. We. Have an, historical. Fire in this town and I, know it. Was 9,000, people living, here in. The city of Diablo, and. Approximately. 80%. Was, left without houses. There's. Always a risk when a goat is on fire that it can spread and we, have the old town, quite. Near where the goats standing, so that's always worried. My. Whole occupation. Has been. Based, on putting fires out and helping people and. These people don't help anybody, like. The one not. Last year about the year before he. Used some kind of, petrol. I think and, he. Got it, on himself so the. Man was thought that the gold, fire was burning himself, so. I think he got a good lesson there. There. Is, they. Say a secret, goat. Burning, Club and. There. Was a rumor - that the fireman's here in the town have. A secret, society that. Also, was. Burning to go down but. I, don't believe in that rumor I've. Never heard. Such a silly. Thing. Before. The false light of Jesus, shone on our country, we here. In the north we worship. Fire it. Kept us warm during long winters, and and burned down our enemies and. In. Its scorched wake we, planted, seeds we. Might live another year. In, the northernmost part of, our love there's, only one sunrise. One. Sunset. A year. From. Spring to autumn the. Sun makes its way slowly across, the sky, and. In the winter. In. The winter. Pray. For the Sun to, return. If. You look at the Galago as a symbol you can you can see both the, very, nice Christian. Symbol, of the. Christmas. Goat but. Also the very devil, ish side if you like. In. Many of the legends that are around here the devil is often disguised. But it has a the. Hoof of a. Goat and that's how you can recognize him. 350. Years ago we had this boy in Yahweh who accused. His, mother, among, others for witchcraft and, telling these stories how, he was abducted to, blow, Kula the, land of the devil, along with the east, witch's, weather. We're having intercourse with the devil and so on.
His. Mother she was sent. To trial and she was. Sentenced. To death. Beheaded. And burnt at the stake. They. Have a very, special. Incident. With the goat and it was very tragic. And. It. Was a man, who first he. Killed a man and. After. A little. Time, he. Also burned. The gold and we. Didn't know it, was the, same man but when we talked with him he. Told, us that, he was the one who have, burned down the gold. And. It. Was a sad, story. But. He was out of after, five six years now I, think he had family. And live like, normal. Life. It. Was the 4th of December, in. 2005. Two, young men one. Of them was, dressed like a gingerbread, man, another. One like a Santa, Claus and it's. Difficult to get the goat so. They. Get the goat on fire, with, fire. Arrows, and. The. Goat burned down. The. Mightiest, of all our warriors, store, he was carried through this guy on, a chariot, that was pulled by two goats, and, their hooves made, this sound of thunder. And. Every, night the, hardwood God would. Throw them both into fire and eat their flesh. At, every. Morning the goats would be resurrected so. He could write again a burning. Sun across our Nordic sky. Yesterday. The. Sun showed for, four hours. Only. Sacrificing. Fire we'll bring it back. The. Gold. Represents. Love. Light. And. Happiness. It. Gives hope. For, the, people in our town. When. The, goat burns. Downs you, feel like, the darkness, as one. And. I don't want, to have that feeling I would, like to, say. No, to the, darkness and, I, will say we, must take, it back for. Light again. When. I look down for my tower. I. Very. Very angry. When you'll see black, black. Goat, and. You. Know it's. Sad. For every people here after, what's happened I. Will, play my. Favorite. Christmas. Song in, minor. Not. The major because. I think, it's a symbol of the sadness. Many. People, he's. Feeling now. Even. It's you it was a terrible. Thing what, that's. Happened, the, Sun. Is still shining. And the. Sea is still blue and. I. Think, in. A year from now a new goat, will. Rise, from the ashes.
