The strange Christmas custom with the fighting

Every year on December 25th in a suburb of Peru in Santo Tomas, a strange custom is revived, which includes enough… fighting! The custom of fighting, essentially between neighbors, is called “Takanakuy” which means “to hit each other” and involves young and old, even women, who after their “fight” they drink together in order to celebrate!

This custom has now spread to other parts of Peru!
