There can't be a whackier PARTY than this!

Students in Scotland’s St Andrews University took part in the annual ‘foam party’ in St Salvador’s Quad over the weekend during the Raisin Day celebrations.

The Raisin Day is a traditional carnival where first year students of the university have a wild foam party with their ‘parents’ or seniors.  Festivities continue throughout the weekend and culminate in a foam fight on Monday morning.

The legend goes that first years used to give sacks of raisins to their seniors as a mark of respect, but how raisins gave way to the crazy foam fight is not clear. Well, it doesn’t really matter, does it?

Here are some crazy photographs. Enjoy!
