During this holiday season, remember what’s truly important: ridiculously cute goat elf cosplay.

The goats seem to be getting used to the snow, which is good because we’re expecting a bit today again.* Maybe I’ll find Tauntaun costumes for them …


Whatever your beliefs, or lack thereof, have a great holiday. And now you will, because goats.

* And before anyone calls PETA on me, they all slip in the snow, cosplaying or not. As I mention in the video notes, they’re amazing jumpers and climbers, but really awkward when they don’t stick the landing.
