Which of these traditions would you like to take part in? Do they remind you of any other festivals that you know about?

I have ever heard about the cheese rolling. It's fun. But I refer to take part in World Championship Snail Racing. I surprise that not only human but also animals have a race.

Hello everybody, :)

One tradition can be cheese rolling competition. I'd like to participate for the adventure of running after a cheese. I've seen some of this competition videos and looks awesome and extremely funny.

I'd like to take part in the Burning of the claive. They remind me of an old festival called Samhain which took part in celtic lands of Europe, like Ireland or Scotland, for more than three thousand years.
