Here in the high desert we have "the Burning of Zozobra" a festival of the burning of old man gloom. I think this is where the "Burning Man
festival" first got the idea.
Out side of Santa Fe, they build a 50 ft. tall articulated, vocal marionette that is set ablaze. The participants in this ritual usually get real
drunk, fight, and wreck their pickups. What a perfect way to start the harvest season, and the renewal of the earth thru the cold Rocky Mtn. winter.
Have a safe and merry halloween everyone!
Don't drink and drive, please!
