Fight eggs in spain
On December 28, the annual 200-year-old festival "Els Enfarinats" was held in the South-Eastern Spanish town of Ibi. Participants in military uniforms arrange battles with eggs, flour and firecrackers. The festival is held in honor of the biblical beating of babies by King Herod, who once lived in the city of Ibi. During the day, the participants of the festival “overthrow the power”, then “choose a new one” and issue “new laws”. Then they go to look for citizens who have not paid the taxes of the "new power", those who disagree with them pay thrown flour and eggs. By noon, a group is formed that is tired of the “new power”, they are trying to overthrow it with the help of eggs and flour. The battle ends with a truce with songs, dances and fundraising for charity.
