Goat Vincent Doll

The Yule goat is a Scandinavian and Northern European Yule and Christmas symbol and tradition.


The Yule goat's origins are pre-Christian

During the 19th century the Yule goat's role all over Scandinavia shifted towards becoming the giver of Christmas gifts, with one of the men in the family dressing up as the Yule goat.

Traditionally, in Scandinavia, Christmas goats are made of straw and come in all sizes, from tree ornament-sized to massive outdoor constructions

Inspired by this legend, Goat Vincent came into being.
His mask is woven of straw, and he wears a thick fabric coat,
a leather vest and belt and wool pants. His leather boots have little bells.
He's also wearing fringed leather gauntlets
(originally made for a 'Masques'costume)
The little goat beside him is a pattern commonly used
for fabric goat ornaments

What a ride!

by Angie

“Hurry, Vincent,” Devin urged his brother, who gazed wide-eyed at the wooden sled.

They reached the Central Park exit in record time and dashed through the silent snow fantasyland to Pilgrim's Hill.

Vincent settled at the front of the sleigh, then Devin pushed and jumped on behind. They flew down the hill. 

Vincent stifled a yell of joy, gasping with laughter instead.

“Again!” he begged, at the bottom. So they did, again and again, until both were soaked and cold.

Running home, Vincent's face was bright with happiness. Devin didn't regret the subterfuge. It had been worth everything.
