Plinxmas Vidvent Calendar - Day 8!

I don't know about where you are, but here the weather is just awful. Rain, wind, cold. Nasty. I wish it'd snow. I bloody love snow, especially throwing snowballs.

However, there are some people who love snowball fighting more than is perhaps appropriate. To the point where they've given it a name and called it a sport.

Yukigassen, from the Japanese words for 'snow' and 'battle'. It appears to be catching on. Originating in Japan and spreading to America, Canada and parts of Europe (the snowy parts, I'd wager), could it one day be an event in the Winter Olympics? We can only hope.

Until then, just have a squiz at this video:

A bit unnecessarily epic in presentation but there we go. See you tomorrow!
