No, you read that right. I did in fact say testicle festival. Believe it or not, its a huge deal around these parts. Bohemians and well, NOT Bohemians, alike come from ALL OVER THE PLACE to eat fried animal nuts. I am pretty sure the little town with a population of (quite literally) 50 brought in close to 1,000 people for the festival. It was concept completely and totally lost on me for YEARS but this year I decided that I did actually really want to go to see what all the hub bub was about.
I LOVE community activities, especially those that have been going on for eons and everyone goes to to get together, and just enjoy each other's company. I have to imagine people go to this festival for that very reason and not for the nuts. I had to laugh because the guy to girl ratio was rather scewed. Seems a little narcissistic to me that so many men would show up for this ceremonial feast of genitalia. But I have to admit it was a LOT of fun! For those who aren't into testicles, they also had fried fish, beer, chips, and a raffle! It was really really great to see so many familiar faces. So perhaps people do only go for the camaraderie. Either way though, I don't think we'll be going back next year.

Do you have any weird traditions where you're from?!
