Default Another reason why PP and the island is so special

Those people who were here this weekend were lucky enough to witness what has to be one of the most amazing Fiestas.
I have deliberately not put this in the San Antoni section because I want people who do not normally pay attention to this fiesta because its in January to have a glimpse.
This whole weekend shows everything that is good about PP. fantastic involvement by all ages. For me the Highlight of the weekend was seeing all the small children at the front of the ropes pulling the tree through the town. Fully involved ensuring traditions and family values never die.
Where in the world can hundreds if not thousands of people of all ages and gender, gather around open fires burning in the middle of the streets, drink huge amounts of alcohol, drag a several hundred foot pine tree through the streets lather it with washing up liquid, erect it in the square and then try to climb to the top to reach a bag of cash, whilst being well fueled with the local alcohol. and surround by Fire crackers and huge bangs.
All of the above without 1 spot of trouble, and seeped in traditions. The entire day was policed by 4 local Police officers. ( wonder how many would be needed in any town in England if such an event were allowed to take place) bellow is a link with some pictures. So if you have always dismissed San Antoni because its in January. trust me you are missing something very special. have a look at the pictures and book for next year I guarantee you will talk about it for a very long time . click the link to see pictures and second link to see videohttps://flic.kr/s/aHsksa4zbA https://flic.kr/s/aHskrYvm8z
