Happy Howl-o-ween from Ruptly with this Corgi Costume Parade

Description

What do you get when you cross dozens of Corgis with all sorts of different costumes? A Corgi Costume Parade of course! Dozens of Corgi owners dressed up their pups in imaginative costumes just so they could take part in the annual Corgi Halloween parade in downtown Annapolis on Sunday. Organised by the Annapolis Corgi Club, the parade saw Corgis dressed as lions, minions, cowboys, hot dogs, lobsters - you name it, there was probably a Corgi costume at the parade. Entry to the event was free but participants were encouraged to donate in order to cover permit costs. Grinning from ear to ear, the cute canines took to the streets around 11:00 local time and started just outside the Paws Pet Boutique pet supply store. Corgis and their human participants walked around the historic State Circle up to Main Street and then north towards City Dock. Hundreds of locals and tourists turned up to snap photos at the spooky event and cheer on the little pups as they strutted their stuff. The Corgis stole the show as their fancy costumes invaded Annapolis just one day before Halloween. It's hard to imagine how any human could possibly show them up.

  • Hell to Pay! Devils Whip Faithful to Cleanse Sins in El Salvador Festival

    Those of us worried about our spiritual futures turn to religious rituals to help us prepare for the afterlife, but some believers in the El Salvadorian town of Texistepeque have taken that idea to another level. Welcome to the Talciguines festival, where demons literally whip your sins away. The Talciguines festival draws tourists and locals alike to stand in the crowd and wait for participants dressed as 'demons' to strike them with leather whips in order to 'banish their sins.' Talciguines is a theatrical tradition that is meant to represent the battle between 'good and evil.' Forty-five men dress up in red robes, meant to represent 'the devil' or 'demons.' Following a church service the participants go out into the streets, where they proceed to whip people. Following the whipping, another man, dressed as Jesus Christ, performs with 'the demons,' walking over their prostrate bodies to represent the cleansing of their sins. The practice of enduring suffering on earth in order to attain redemption, salvation, or other spiritual rewards is known as asceticism, and has served as a tenet in many religions, including Christianity. However, when people perform bodily harm to themselves or allow others to harm them, this practice is known as unnatural ascetism. The festival is a part of a holy Easter week in El Salvador and attracts thousands of people from all over the world.

  • Get Into the Halloween Spirit with Mexico City's Parade of the Catrinas

    Mexico City's Parade of the Catrinas, a massive celebration of Mexican culture and art that takes place just one week before the Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, was a scary good time. Thousands of people put on ghoulish face paint and paraded down Republic of Salvador Street in the nation's capital to the Angel of the Revolution statue wearing all sorts of macabre but elegant costumes on Saturday. The Day of the Dead, one of Mexico's most important and well-known holidays, has its roots in pre-colonial times, when the Aztec emperor still reigned supreme. The holiday focuses on honoring family, friends, and even pets that have passed away. People continued to celebrate the event even after the Spanish army conquered the territory and tried to convert the native people to Catholicism and drive out the old religions. However, the traditions of the older cultures proved much too resilient and people simply fused their old customs with the newer Catholic ones. A Mexican illustrator named Jose Guadalupe Posada felt that indigenous Mexicans were trying too hard to look like Europeans and drew a satirical drawing of a skull wearing a fancy European hat. Called the Calavera Catrina, this illustration would go on to inspire the birth of the Catrina style, in which people make their faces look like skulls with facepaint while wearing elegant clothing. The holiday traditionally takes place near October 31 (All Hallows' Eve), November 1 (All Saints Day) and November 2 (All Souls Day).
