A reveler takes part in the battle of 'Enfarinats,' a flour fight in celebration of the Els Enfarinats festival on December 28, 2015 in Ibi, Spain. Citizens of Ibi annually celebrate the festival with a battle using flour, eggs, and firecrackers. The battle takes place between two groups, a group of married men called 'Els Enfarinats' who take the control of the village for one day pronouncing a whole host of ridiculous laws and fining the citizens that infringe them and then another group called 'La Oposicio,' that tries to restore order. At the end of the day the money collected from the fines is donated to charitable causes in the village. The festival has been celebrated since 1981 after the town of Ibi recovered the tradition but the origins remain unknown.
