In this Dec. 25, 2015 photo, fighter Freddy Pacco puts his hat on before taking part in a “Takanakuy” ritual fighting event on the outskirts of Lima, Peru on Christmas day. “I fight because it is a tradition and to prove my bravery,” said Pacco. The fighters wear birds or other dead animals on their heads for a more intimidating look, he explained. Pacco said the bird is a “cernicalo,” a kind of falcon. (AP Photo/Martin Mejia)
