[130] This primitive aspect of the festival is well shown by the human 

sacrifices which the ancient Mexicans offered at this time, in order to 

enable the sun to recuperate his strength. The custom survives in a 

symbolical form among the Mokis, who observe the festivals of the winter 

solstice and the vernal equinox. ("Aspects of Sun-worship among the Moki 

Indians," _Nature_, July 28, 1898.) The Walpi, a Tusayan people, hold a 

similar great sun-festival at the winter solstice, and December is with 

them a sacred month, in which there is no work and little play. This 

festival, in which there is a dance dramatizing the fructification of the 

earth and the imparting of virility to the seeds of corn, is fully 

described by J. Walter Fewkes (_American Anthropologist_, March, 1898). 

That these solemn annual dances and festivals of North America frequently 

merge into "a lecherous _saturnalia_" when "all is joy and happiness," is 

stated by H.H. Bancroft (_Native Races of Pacific States_, vol. i, p. 

352). 

 

[131] As regards the northern tribes of Central Australia, Spencer and 

Gillen state that, during the performance of certain ceremonies which 

bring together a large number of natives from different parts, the 

ordinary marital rules are more or less set aside (_Northern Tribes of 

Central Australia_, p. 136). Just in the same way, among the Siberian 

Yakuts, according to Sieroshevski, during weddings and at the great 

festivals of the year, the usual oversight of maidens is largely removed.

[133] Dalton, _Ethnology of Bengal_, pp. 196 et seq. W. Crooke (_Journal 

of the Anthropological Institute_, p. 243, 1899) also refers to the annual 

harvest-tree dance and _saturnalia_, and its association with the seasonal 

period for marriage. We find a similar phenomenon in the Malay Peninsula: 

"In former days, at harvest-time, the Jakuns kept an annual festival, at 

which, the entire settlement having been called together, fermented 

liquor, brewed from jungle fruits, was drunk; and to the accompaniments of 

strains of their rude and incondite music, both sexes, crowning themselves 

with fragrant leaves and flowers, indulged in bouts of singing and 

dancing, which grew gradually wilder throughout the night, and terminated 

in a strange kind of sexual orgie." (W.W. Skeat, "The Wild Tribes of the 

Malay Peninsula," _Journal of the Anthropological Institute_, 1902, p. 

133.)

[137] J. Grimm (_Teutonic Mythology_, p. 615) points out that the 

observance of the spring or Easter bonfires marks off the Saxon from the 

Franconian peoples. The Easter bonfires are held in Lower Saxony, 

Westphalia, Lower Hesse, Geldern, Holland, Friesland, Jutland, and 

Zealand. The Midsummer bonfires are held on the Rhine, in Franconia, 

Thuringia, Swabia, Bavaria, Austria, and Silesia. Schwartz (_Zeitschrift
