File Under Bizarre Holiday Traditions

So, once again I found out about the town's annual Christmas Tree Toss the weekend after it happened. I've never seen it, but apparently it involves the City police chief and the Township police chief engaged in exactly what it sounds like, a procession in on a pony, the City police chief wearing his excellent and sexy kilt (seriously, if I ever wanted to marry a cop, I'd off this guy's wife and marry him), and an inexplicable ceremonial goat.

Yeah, I don't understand the bit about the goat either.

I bring this up tonight mostly because the holidays seem to bring out a lot of unique traditions here, and New Year's Eve is no exception. Have I mentioned yet that we drop an enormous Peep?

This town is very, very strange.
