I bet my cousin in Sweden that it won’t last before the 14th, but it might burn on the 10th. She said that it is the #1 betting topic in her village.
She’s going to a craft fair with locals from this area today. I can’t compete with this insider stuff… which is why I treat the Gavle Goat like roulette and play the sides. Also, it’s a joke bet and I was making her a present either way.
Our stakes are knitted, but nothing is more intense than the day-to-day struggles of a straw goat that is set on fire every year for 47 years in a rural area of Sweden. Poor goat.
