New year surprise

DZ has been amused, and bemused by some of the absurd ritual practices of established religions for many years. The virtual cannibalism of catholic mass and starving yourself for no logical reason being just two. But today, January the first, apparently is Feast of the Circumcision day for many christians, even though christianity no longer practices ritual male genital mutilation. When I first heard of this I thought it was a joke, something you might read about in News Thump but no, it is quite real. I wonder if there is a tradition as to what is on the menu. Pork scratchings anyone?
