Today Santa Claus hands out the presents in Sweden on Christmas Eve, but who did the job until the 20th Century? Yule Goat

Explanation

In Sweden, Christmas dishes and meals are always served on a ´Julbord´ (´christmas table´, a kind of buffet with many different dishes), and often contain Christmas ham and the world-famous potato-ansjovy dish, ´Janssons frestelse´. For dessert the Swedes eat a rice pudding with a fruit sauce, where a whole almond is hidden. The person who gets the almond is predicted to be married during the following year. Until the 20th century, presents were distributed by the Yule Goat, still used as Christmas decoration, but today Jultomten hands out the gifts.
