Hailing from Scandinavia, the origins of the Christmas goat are shrouded in mystery. Though it's known that it has been a festive tradition for many years, the exact origin of the tradition remains unknown. It is believed that the custom originated from an old Viking ritual of sacrificing a goat to the thunder God Thor's goats during the winter solstice in order to bring luck in the upcoming year.
