I must note that these guys run around screaming & shaking cowbells. They sometimes stop to knock shit over and start humping each other. There are also people dressed up as bears and they pretend to be bears and basically this is Anthrocon 500BC
This ceremony ended during the 1930’s, probably because of Franco & WWII when a huge chunk of the Basque population was murdered.
The tradition was brought back in the 1990’s. No, they didn’t bring it back just after WWII, they brought it back in the 90’s.
Hey 90’s kids remember the time your mom took you out and a bunch of goat men screamed at you while cupping each others balls and coating themselves in pigs blood?
If you’re a basque kid then you just might.
