This is how they ring in the New Year in the Andes, and it looks psychotically amazing. These are photos from the Takanakuy, an ancient tradition among certain Peruvian villages in which guys get drunk, wear masks and beat the hell out of each other to settle disputes. It’s an airing of grievances all over your face.
Man I wish we had this in the USA. I’m not sure in what arena but I would imagine we could think of about a million.
Pics after the jump and thanks to Buzzfeed for alerting this “tradition” to our attention…
More fighting next….
