Oaxaca, Mexico is famous for its “Night of the Radishes”. On every December 23, the Noché del Rábano, local giant radishes are carved into elaborate shapes depicting characters in the Nativity story, Aztec gods or animals; prizes are awarded for the most creative while dances, firework displays and a huge Christmas fair take place.
