I don't see the point

Even though I have seen my fair share of festivals and celebrations, it is still beyond me where some countries come up with their ideas. It is almost as though a group of individuals were hanging out one day in someone's kitchen, drinking and having a good time, when one of them started playing with a bowl of garden vegetables. As the evening wore on, the individual (finding nothing else to do with his hands) started to squeeze the fruits one at a time, when he finally got to the tomatoes. By this time the tomato was pretty soft, so it did not take much for it to begin squirting tomato juice through its broken skin. That tomato squirted onto a couple of the other party goers and eventually it ended up in a situation where it was a free for all.

The book of Luke tells us, “And Mary said, I'm bursting with God-news; I'm dancing the song of my Savior God. God took one good look at me, and look what happened— I'm the most fortunate woman on earth! What God has done for me will never be forgotten, the God whose very name is holy, set apart from all others. His mercy flows in wave after wave on those who are in awe before him. He bared his arm and showed his strength, scattered the bluffing braggarts. He knocked tyrants off their high horses, pulled victims out of the mud. The starving poor sat down to a banquet; the callous rich were left out in the cold. He embraced his chosen child, Israel; he remembered and piled on the mercies, piled them high.”

I know that some will disagree with my opinion on this matter, but they are entitled. The fact that this Tomatina festival is allowed to go on, with so many people starving in this world, concerns me to no end. God provides food, clothes and shelter for his children and this what we do with it? Why didn't these party goers choose to send the food that they were using here, to others who were really in need? What a waste!!!
