Capra (The Goat) is a long standing winter tradition where young men accompany The Goat to their neighbour's doorsteps and dance and sing to bring mirth and wealth to the homesteads. The people reward them in exchange with specially prepared food, wine and sweet baked goods.

Charles Fréger captures the spirit of what he calls “tribal Europe” in his “Wilder Mann” series A huge array of pagan rituals, mainly related to the winter solstice and spring renewal, focusing on the common myth of the “wild man".
