Custom: Holiday

IN THE CENTER OF THE TOWN, THE UNATTACHED MEN WALKED
AROUND THE PLAZA COUNTER-CLOCKWISE, WHILE THE UNMARRIED
GIRLS WALKED IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION. OCCASIONALLY,
THE GIRLS WILL REST ON OVERLOOKING BALCONIES, FROM
WHICH THEY WILL THROW SMALL DARTS TRAILING COLORED
STREAMERS. AFTER THE PARADE, THE MAN IS ENTITLED
TO VISIT ONLY BALCONIES DECORATED IN THE COLORS MATCHING
THE STREAMERS HE HOLDS.
