The 6 Most Mind-Boggling Celebration Traditions Ever

Page 1 of 5

Celebration traditions: who needs a reason to celebrate, right? Well, while there is no need for a special motif in the case of a small party amongst friends, you would think that you need some reasoning behind a yearly celebrated festival. Not necessarily. We have compiled a list of the world’s most unusual festivals. While all of them have a theme, understanding why someone would come up with such an idea for a celebration is beyond us, similar to our insane coverage of what to know about Japan before going.

Let’s take a look.

No. 6: Celebrating the Male Genitals, Japan and Greece

The people of Kawasaki, Japan and Lerissa, Greece, like to show their appreciation of the male genitals each year through a festival. Everything featured in these unique and unusual festivals is phallus-shaped or themed. It is somewhat unclear how these celebrations started out in the first place, but the locals do seem to enjoy themselves.

No. 5: Baby Blessings – With A Twist, Spain

While there’s nothing unusual about the celebration that goes along with blessing a baby, the Spanish have been rather inventive in this department. The locals of Castrillo de Murcia have been engaged in a centuries old festival which involves lying the babies down on a mattress while a man dressed in a devil costume jumps over them. Supposedly, this is meant to cleanse the babies of sin and ensure their good health and luck in life.
