Have Yourself a Bleaty Little Christmas With This Album of Holiday Songs Sung by Goats

Not-so-silent night

In the spirit of the holiday season, and to finally upstage that classic recording of dogs barking "Jingle Bells," ActionAid Sweden and the Wenderfalck agency produced an album of Christmas carols … interpreted by bleating goats. 

In addition to cashing in on goats as an Internet fad, the album—titled All I Want for Christmas Is a Goat—is an attempt to raise awareness about goats' overall utility, especially in rural and high-poverty communities.

The album itself can be streamed on Spotify, and the promo video above includes snippets from a few songs. It sounds exactly like you'd imagine it would: each song is a patchwork of goat noises that roughly follows familiar melodies. 

But as far as novelties go, it's still better than the Insane Clown Posse Christmas album.
