A man dressed as a soldier drinks from a wineskin during Los Escobazos Festival on December 7, 2013 in Jarandilla de la Vera, Spain. Although the origin of "Los Escobazos" is unknown, it is believed that goat shepherds used to walk down from Gredos mountains to the village to celebrate the Immaculate Conception procession lighting their way with broom torches.
