(New) Sports Trend: Yukigassen

The photo above does not show another Occupy gathering, but something to do in your spare time.

What once was called snowball fight was brought to another dimension by – guess who – the Japanese. Masters of funny games and re-naming old traditions. Snowball fighting is now called Yukigassen. And the brave people of Sweden are amongst those who brought it to Europe. They have enough snow over there – which might help.

The subheading to the video published by Swedish Yukigassen provides some more information: “Video from the Swedish Championship in Yukigassen, snow ball fighting, held in Luleå on the 20-21 February 2010.” [yukigassen.se]
