La Tomatina, We Have Heard. But The Night Of The Radishes?!?


When it’s the Spanish La Tomatina, we dance in a rain of tomatoes, get ample vitamin C and end up looking questionable and bright.

Have you ever heard of the Spanish Night of the Radishes, though?

Two days before Christmas, on December 23, Oaxaca in Mexico celebrates the Night of the Radishes. The first official account of this Night Is December 23, 1897. This ‘festival’ has colonial roots, the Spanish having introduced this pungent root to the country.

So what happens on this night?

Easy, peasy, radish, no squeezy. Please.

Oversized radishes are carved on the night, the motivation being prizes in different categories that these ‘scenes’ compete for. What the observer is left with, thoigh, is a plethora of shapes, sizes and designs, and left over radish pieces.

Have a look:

Didn’t expect it to be so artsy, did you?

Vegetables carving is a thing, people!

It’s so beautiful that it’s a little spooky!

We don’t even mind the pungency anymore.
