'Weather vane' just doesn't have the same ring
Church cock victory joy: 'it's huge and majestic'
Residents of Hisingen in Gothenburg will be celebrating more than just Easter this year, after the cock atop their local church took home Sweden's annual Church Cock of the Year award.
"It's really fun that our cock won," Lars-Göran Vedin, who nominated the cock-shaped weather vane told The Local.
"It's just something special. It's huge and majestic."
Vedin is one of the members of "The Sunday Cocks" (Söndagstupparna), a hiking club whose members are "up with the crowing cocks" every Sunday morning, enjoying ten kilometer hikes around the Hisingen region.
He claims that his club has hiked past the church's glorious cock many times before, and that he had put it up for nomination many time before.
