Sometimes, people argue. They don’t like each other. They fight.

There is a festival in Peru. It happens every year. It happens at the end of the year. People fight at this festival. They can wear masks. Men, women and even children fight.

Why do they fight? They want to end their disputes. They want to start the new year in peace.

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
