It looks like they "borrowed" the idea from the Burning Man event.


BLUFF, San Juan County — A Southern Utah town will burn a 16-foot effigy of a mammoth Friday to celebrate the winter solstice and draw attention to the historical significance of the area.

"What's really gonna be fun is they're gonna set it on fire with primitive Native American technology, meaning they're either going to use bows and arrows or they're going to use atlatl spears," Gulliford said. "It'll be fun to see if they can even hit the thing with a flaming atlatl dart."

Ah, now I see! This is what prevented the apocalypse! The offering was made and the Gods appeased.

They should do one every year just in case ATS gets a date wrong!
