christmas-trees for sale

This Christmas tree salesman really made a nice and cosy place for his market. He decorated his area with one of the oldest christmas symbols  (in the Northern countries) the “Chritmas billy goat”. (There is possibly a better name, but  not in the wordbook!) It is made out of straw.

More about the “Yule goat” at wikipedia.

The Danish word for Christmas is “jul”, and is pronounced “Yule”.

    Oh that is sweet. We used to have some old ornaments made out of straw for our tree. I may have to find some that are the goat for my tree.
