December 23
First occurrence:
Noche de Los Rabanos, or Night of the Radishes
is a festival
from Oaxaca City in Mexico.
Each year on December 23 there is a huge festive parade
with elaborate decorations made from oversized radishes.
Since the 1980ies this tradition was started as a cool gimmick
to attract more attention to the winter markets.
From then on this became a big annual event attracting tourists
from far and wide.
And this is one of the more unique methods
of how you get people to enjoy their vegetables!
