Blimey, how brilliantly adorable! Did you know that Ireland has the second highest population of natural gingers in the world? I always wanted to have fiery red hair...
Anyway, this past weekend an Irish village in County Cork called Crosshaven hosted its seventh annual Irish Redhead Convention. More than 1,000 people arrived to celebrate and embrace their ginger-ness. Besides spending the weekend enjoying each other’s company, all the participants could take part in activities like ginger speed dating or carrot tossing championship - not to mention making tons of new and interesting friends. It had to be a ball, don't you think?
Fun fact: originally, this festival started off as a joke between two siblings, but has turned into a major event run by 50 volunteers. Impressive!
What's your hair colour?
P.S: Fancy more Irish goodness?
