Sounds bizarre? This is a festival celebrated in New Zealand. The residents are allowed to smash eggs on themselves and each other. Also, there are various other games played with eggs.

This is against the commercial Christmas. People Burn paper lanterns and release them at the beach sides. They let go the bad memories of the ending year with the lanterns.
