On the eve of Saint Anthony’s Day, hundreds ride their horses trough the narrow cobblestone streets of the small village of San Bartolome de Pinares in Spain during the ‘Luminarias,’ a traditional festival that dates back 500 years and is meant to purify the animals with the smoke of the bonfires and protect them for the year to come. Shorter St. Anthony’s Day-goers: Hey, ride your horse with us through a bonfire because religion or something.
