Orange You Glad You Came?
Americans like to go nuts and have food fights.
Spaniards like to throw “des tomatoes.” The annual La Tomatina festival, in which locals throw tomatoes at each other every August in Buñol near Valencia, establishes Spain’s crazy tomato credentials.
It turns out that Americans and Spaniards aren’t the only ones throwing food around in the name of crazy. Locals in Ivrea, Italy, 50 kilometers west of Milano, like to fight their own battles with freshly picked pre-Lent oranges.
Ashes to ashes, they all fall down.
