Subject: RE: Mr Fox and his dancers
In our modern day; who takes control of the bonfire and the barbeque -just think about it! - It's a very primeval and innate instinct that we men just can't let go.

Alternatively, it's something men do more than women now, but we've got no evidence that men have been doing it more than women for as much as 100 years, let alone several millennia. You can't prove speculations about the past with facts about the present.

It sounds like a fantastic show - I'm sold. But in terms of tradition it sounds like pure fakelore.
