Upper two images are "Dondoyaki" at Sugiyama shrine at Machida city tukushino ('96 January 14).Many people go to shrine and burn old divine tablet,"shimekazari","kadomatu",etc and roast "dango (are thrust to twig)" by the fire and eat it.
The tradition says that people eat "dango" don't catch a cold this year.
