In this photo taken on Monday, Jan. 20, 2020, people in traditional costumes take part in the traditional "Las Carantonas" festival in Acehuche, Spain. The Carantonas involves men pulling on animal hides that make them look like Chewbacca. At the Carantoñas festival in Acehuche, men are helped to pull on hairy, bulky costumes and scary masks before they walk down streets of whitewashed houses looking like wild beasts ("carantoñas"). Women parade in colorful embroidered shawls and skirts as music plays. (AP Photo/Manu Fernandez)
