  4. One of the messiest festivals can be found in Buñol, Spain, on the last Wednesday of August. La Tomatina — the world’s largest tomato fight — is a weeklong celebration that  includes music, parades and fireworks, but is highlighted by the tomato  fight in the town square. The battle begins at high noon after more than  300,000 pounds of tomatoes are trucked in. For one hour, locals and  tourists pelt and pummel each other, creating a memorable and mushy  mess.

  5. Wedding ceremony in Massai (Masai) nation of Kenya is very unusual. On the day of wedding the bride’s head is  shaved and lamb fat and oil is applied on her head. In most cultures  head shaving of women is not encouraged. It’s a sign of disgrace. In  India widows used to shave their heads to decrease their beauty.  The  second weird custom is that after her wedding her father spits on her  head and breasts. Spitting is again a symbol of disgrace usually but in  Massai nation it is thought to bring good luck and fortune. Then she  leaves for her new home with her husband and never looks back. The  husband doesn’t stay in the house in which she stays for the next two  days and then her mother in law shaves her head. This commences the  wedding ceremony declaring them man and wife for life.
