I started planning this Yule Goat costume in June, and now it is finally COMPLEEETE! Crazy 
I am pretty thrilled about how it turned out! I just have a few more things I would like to edit or add, but I will do that in time for next years Yule. Hopefully this Julbock will come back each Yule, for many years.

When I was very young, my grandpa used to dress up as the yule goat, and it scared the heck out of all the kids, me included xD Besides the straw goat figurines, I haven't seen anyone else carry out the yule goat tradition here in Estonia, but despite that, I've really taken a liking to this piece of folklore :D Truly amazing work on the costume! :la:

Wow that sounds amazing (and scary)!! So cool that he did that! I haven't really seen anyone dress up as Julbocken here before either. Just the straw goats aand the huge straw goat in Gävle where I lived before I moved, that folks burn down every year xD
I hope I can inspire some people do be Julbocken instead of Santa on Christmas/Yule :D Thank you! Christmas Dance

Haha yeah it was a tradition there every Christmas. He'd wear some kind of thick robe so we wouldn't recognize him, then had a long heavy stick where the end was covered in wool shaped and decorated into a goat head, and attached to it was a big cow bell. We'd hear him approach the house from afar thanks to it. At first he'd look in through the window, then enter the house and slowly walk toward the kids who all scattered screaming hahaha. I mean in a way it was fun, until he came too close. But I didn't really know about yule goat until I was much older. 
I'm really in a yule goat mood this year rather than Santa, lol. Drawing julbocken related adopts and enlightening my friends about who it is xD

Oh yeah haha. Is this year's big goat still alive?
