New Year’s Eve in Ecuador Means You Can Set Your Favorite Characters on Fire

Burning effigies isn’t always associated with good cheer, but on New Year’s Eve in Ecuador, setting dummies known as “años viejos” ablaze is all just part of a celebration capping Earth’s latest successful spin around the sun. Ricardo Bohorquez has captured some of the more massive años viejos on the streets of Guayaquil with stellar photos detailing their construction from wood, paper and other materials. Comic fans will especially appreciate the giant Hulk, Dragon Ball GT’s (Super Saiyan 4!) Vegeta, Shadow the Hedgehog, Smurfs, Transformers and ThunderCats sculptures set to ascend into smoke this weekend. Admit it, a part of you has always wanted to see Snarf engulfed in flames. Check out Bohorquez’s awesome photos after the jump.
