The Bonfire

29th place (joint)
Every February, this kind of bonfire takes place in plenty of cities and villages in the swabian-alemannic region of Germany and also parts of France and other alpine situated countries. Even standing away for more than 50meters warms you on freezing cold nights, sometimes too hot to face the flames directly. The witch is filled with fireworks and it is said to be a bad sign for spring, if they don't blow up.
