Lomisi is a picturesque mountain in Eastern Georgia where visitors may witness one of the most colorful and controversial folk festivals that is celebrated on the first Wednesday after the Trinity holiday. It's accompanied by sheep offerings and interesting rituals. For example, kids lay on the ground and adults pretend to step on them. This is supposed to bring luck. Lots of wine and meat is traditionally consumed during the festival. Because of massive sheep sacrifice the festival is accompanied by protests from animal rights groups.
