La Tomatino Festival

According to the morning news, today is the day of the Tomatina festival in Bunol, Spain. This festival is held to honor the town's patron saints Luis Beltran and the Virgin Mary with a tomato fight. The tomato fight can't start until someone manages to climb a greased pole to retrieve a ham at the top. Festivus has nothing on this.
