The Rolling Cheese in Gloucester, England, has been celebrated for the last 200 years. The competitors situate in the highest part of the Coppers Hill and a cheese is thrown downhill. The idea is that any of the participants must beat the cheese, arriving before it at the end of the hill.
If you travel to the Amazonas, be careful with the Yanomami tribe. They do not bury their dead people in the ground. When one of them dies, the body is burnt and the ashes and bones are grinded, and after this their families eat the resulting substance.
In Solapur, India, a non-religious organization makes an annual party in which there are babies who are thrown down from a tower which is 15 meters tall. They do not reach the ground, as there are people waiting for them with a sort of cloth in order to cushion their fall. No one knows where this tradition comes from exactly, but luckily no baby has resulted dead yet.
The Caga Tió is a log with a painted face and a Noel cap which brings presents to children in a very particular way. The idea is that the children wait the whole day for the Tió to have a shit under a blanket. This gives the adults many opportunities in order to make noises of farts and make fun of the children as they tell them that Caga Tió is near. The best thing is that if the children want Caga Tió to bring their presents, they first must hit him with a stick at the same time they sing a song for him.
