Madrid: In Spain, more than 15,000 citizens and tourists participated in the Tomato War, in which tomatoes were thrown at each other and the children jumped in tomato juice.

Tomatoes are guaranteed to add flavor to meals while also being eaten with snacks in the form of ketchup to add flavor. Tomatoes are thrown on the stage even if they don’t like the acting and many disliked politicians also have to eat tomatoes. Not in the form of a mouthful, but directly on your face.
