Goats Singing Christmas Carols Is The Holiday Album You Didn't Know You Needed

And it's for a good cause!

We kid you not: An entire Christmas album, sung by goats, is here to brighten your holiday season.

Created by the Swedish branch of ActionAid, a charitable organization dedicated to fighting global poverty, “All I Want For Christmas Is A Goat” features eight holiday classics, including “O Holy Night,” “O Come All Ye Faithful” and a cheerily cacophonous “We Wish You A Merry Christmas.”

ActionAid Sweden said it decided to create the musical collection, which it referred to as the year’s “most important Christmas album,” to highlight the positive impact that goats can have on communities living in poverty.

On its website, the organization explains how goats can survive in climates too dry to grow crops, provide milk and wool, and help struggling families in some parts of the world attain self-sufficiency.
