Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

On another thread Trisagion mentioned Brazilian carnival and that brought good childhood memories.

So here is a less known instance of it, the Bate-Bola, a traditional kids costume in the suburbs of Rio:



A week or so before Carnival starts kids start dressing up like that and walk around the neighborhood in little "gangs" usually with parents accompanying from a small distance. The idea is just to have fun with friends, sometimes scare smaller children by hitting the ball on the ground very loudly (hence the name "Bate-Bola", "Ball hitter").

Good times. :)

Interesting.  They seem to be blessing grapes, as we do, and not (just?) flowers.

Cool. Drag queens need security on any given day.
And from the size of them, watching that food-stuff is important.
