1 THE HUNGER HOOTING FESTIVAL
This harvest festival is celebrated by the Ga people from the Greater Accra Region of Ghana-According to Ga oral tradition a severe famine broke out while they were travelling to the continent’s western coast. After they settled their harvest was plentiful and they had the food they needed. The name of the festival, Homowo, means «hooting at hunger» or mocking hunger. Citizens run around shouting «Thursday people’ Thursday people!» which commemorates the day when the first settlers arrived in Accra. Most homes have enough food in them for a week during the festival. The following day is the day of twins which involves their mothers ^ painting their children with white clay and cooking them a meal of yam and eggs.
2 LA TOMATINA
It is believed that this festival in Bunol started by chance. It happened in 1945 when a participant of the traditional parade in the city centre fell and in a fit of rage started hitting everything around including a vegetable stall. People started throwing vegetables at each other until the police stopped the fight. The following year young people decided to repeat the experience and brought the tomatoes from home. La Tomatina was banned in the early 50s, which was not a problem for the participants who even didn’t mind being arrested. The festival was finally allowed and became an official festivity. It is a free-for-all event which involves 110,000 kilos of tomatoes. Today it’s one of the biggest food fights in the world and a very popular tourist attraction.
The major festival in this country is called « The three manly sports». Those sports, which are considered manly, are wrestling, riding and archery. It’s a traditional event and competitors wear tight-fitting shorts and a harness over bare chests. This uniform was introduced two centuries

wrestler turned out to be a woman. Genghis Khan must have turned in his grave when this
4 THE CAT FESTIVAL
Belgium is something of a surprise package on the festival scene. The Cat Festival in Ypres is only one of many, but given that (until 1817) it used to involve throwing live cats off a belfry y to see if they would land feet down, it deserves a mention here. Today the cats are made of material but originally the event came about to control a rising cat population. No doubt there was a huge campaign not to ban the original event which probably at the time seemed quite logical. It should be noted that the annual goat-tossing from the church belfry in Manganeses de la Polvorosa (Spain), while outlawed in 1992, still continues and involves the almost certain death of an animal.
5 THE KEPPEL KRABTASTIC WORLD CRAB-TYING CHAMPIONSHIPS
Mud crabs are said to have the sweetest meat in the world, and this competition is an effort by their catchers to avoid being pinced, nipped or stabbed by the crabs’ fearsome defence weapons, while tying them up. The brave inhabitants of Keppel Sands step into an arena filled with big crabs and try to tie their claws together before getting nipped. On top of that they have to do that barefoot. The record is three crabs in under 22 seconds. Only someone with a great affinity for shellfish would consider this event an act of cruelty towards animals.
