New Years Eve (Almost) Disaster in Berlin

A man rides a horse with a child through the flames during the "Luminarias" annual religious celebration on 1/16/14, the eve of Saint Anthony's day, which celebrates the patron saint of animals. The photo was taken in the village of San Bartolome de los Pinares, Spain. According to a tradition that dates back 500 years, people ride their horses through the narrow cobblestone streets of this small village to purify the animals with the smoke of the bonfires.
