Welcome to fun:
Some people bent over incense near images of god and fell deeply into a trance. I was told the the gods were entering their bodies.
The men fell deeper and deeper -- so deep that they needed support from others.
At the same time, other man took out long clubs and started hitting themselves -- not that hard but still hard enough.
Out came a collection of very sharp weapons in carts.
And more weapons came in hand baskets.
