Spain has La Tomatina; Scotland has Raisin Monday, in which first year students from St Andrews University take part in a foam fight. Students from St Andrews University participate in traditional Raisin Monday celebrations in St Andrews, Scotland. The tradition dates back to the early days of the university when new students would give senior students a pound of raisins in gratitude for their help in adapting to university life, in exchange for a receipt written in Latin. Failure to produce a receipt could result in a dousing in the local fountain. Nowadays the raisins have been replaced with a bottle of wine and dousing with foam.
