Zamudio: “Arimen Gaua: candle in hand, recycling on mind”
The video presents the “Arimen Gaua” held in Zamudio last 31st of October. Just like the American “Halloween” from much earlier also in the towns of Euskal Herria, as in many places of Europe, there were similar celebrations around the eve of All Hallow´s Day. Zamudio recovered this tradition in a feast which also wanted to encourage recycling by inviting to participate with candles made from used domestic oil.
