Spain’s wild-goose Chain Festival

Spain's wild-goose chain

In Spanish Basque village of Lekeitio, the celebration of Antzar Eguna (Geese’s Day) is honoured with contestants who try to hold onto a dead goose for as long as possible while being jerkily dipped into the ocean on a rope. The winner is the one who decapitates the goose with his bare hands.
