The Scandinavian Julboch (straw Yule goat) originated from Norse Mythology where Thor rode through the heavens in a chariot pulled by two goats. During the 19th century a Julbock would arrive with gifts for children at Yule festivities, symbolizing the gift giving of Saint Nicholas. Today, the Julbock has long been retired to the Yule tree and has been replaced by Father Christmas or the popular American Santa Claus. Photo by Nenyaki
DIY little stars (just images no detail, but could use air dry or polymer clay, hot glue to attach to bakers twine then a sequin to cover the glued spot...or make the stars thin & do 2 back-to-back). Would be cute as mini garland or gift wrap.
