Nuuttipukki is Saint Knut's Day, celebrated on the 13th of January in Sweden and Finland. It is named after a Danish duke who was canonized. It is the day when the Christmas tree is taken down and all the edible decorations are eaten.

Nuuttipukki's origin is Finnish (Finland). It means "goat man" and is meant to be a Krampus-like figure.
