The origin and the name of this ceremony is unknown but is thought to have originated in pagan times when it was considered necessary to make a lot of noise to frighten away evil spirits from the crops. Children of the town make a paper ball tied to a piece of string and walk around the church swinging them, after which they begin to hit each other with the balls in a mock battle.
