Foam Fest

I'm not sure who started this "tradition" nor when it all began, but it has become part of our celebrations.  Friends and family have mixed views, but it seems fathers of young children are in agreement.  Seriousness aside, we had a blast.  Noor cried a little when she was "attacked" by a future pick-up driver and both her and Yousef kept reminding me to lock our doors :)

The story was somewhat different when we parked and got out.  It was revenge time...

actually we were also wondering, how this 'tradition' came into being! :)
personally thought its a nice way of displaying one's joy and jubilation,without much refrain.
vaguely reminiscent of our 'Holi', festival where they go all the way splashing colours, which is due anytime now in March! :)

I'm not judging the way we celebrate Liberation day here but there are some elements which cause problems. read the news reports about people getting sprayed with hair remover cream and spray paint. :(

I finally found out that it comes from Switzerland of all places. Mind you - I'm certain no-one there sits on a speeding pick-up truck and throws the can when they're done!
