Then there's the tradition of the Yule goat, Wiki says,  "In older Scandinavian society a popular prank was to place the Yule Goat in a neighbour's house without them noticing; the family successfully pranked had to get rid of it in the same way". These days towns have massive Yule goats that are sneakily set on fire.
