TIL people in Sweden just set The First Little Pig's Christmas Donkey on fire every year because YOLO or something.

I thought this was Burning Man reopening when I first looked at it.

A recreation of this tradition has actually caused a massive controversy at the Boston Burn regional, including some event board resignations. Talking about “the goat” is still taboo in some circles I hear. Glad to see it on fire 🔥 There is something so visceral and enjoyable about big scale fires for me, even before I got into the burn scene. It’s literally my favorite thing.

Santa Feans have had Burning Man since 1924.

They didn't invent it, either.

watching Zozobra getting burned up makes me happier than it should...
