Merry Christmas! - Now let's fight!
While most people, sit back and relax after a big Christmas meal, residents of Peru like to work it off with a friendly fist fight. The traditional festival known as Takanakuy or 'fighter' starts with dancing and a religious procession.
After that instead of exchanging gifts, people exchange fist fights. These bare-knuckled, free kicking fights are supervised by local government officials and are meant to allow participants to let our all their pent (built) up anger in a safe environment. The best part is, there is no age or gender limitation - Kids, men and women of all ages can join in the fun.
So if Santa forgot to bring you that unique toy on your list, go ahead - take a flight to Peru and go at it!
Have fun watching the video of this quirky and fun festival!
