Pignarûl ritual

On the 6th of January in the north east of Italy, people gather to celebrate the traditional fire ritual of Pignarûl, a huge pile of wood and whatever scrap biomass that can be burnt down, drinking hot spicy wine (vin brulé clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, orange peels, brown sugar) and foreseeing the future year according to the direction of the smoke.
