Unusual Holiday Traditions From Around The World!



1. The Night of the Radishes – Oaxaca, Mexico Tradition
The Night of the Radishes (or Noche de Rábanos) is an annual event in the city of Oaxaca, Mexico dedicated to the carving of oversized radishes to create scenes that compete for prizes in various categories. The event has its origins in the colonial period when radishes were introduced by the Spanish. Oaxaca has a long wood carving tradition and farmers began carving radishes into figures in the hopes of attracting customers' attention at the market in the main square a couple of days before Christmas. In 1897, the city created the formal competition and it is now a three-day festival. The radishes are grown especially for this event, and remain on display through Christmas day. The miniature exhibits depict the Nativity scene and other events from Mexican folklore.
