Watch: Japanese husband-throwing event

      |Residents of Tokamachi, Japan continued a tradition that has been in place since the 18th century - throwing husbands in the snow. The custom, practiced every January 15th, is believed to have started as retaliation against outsiders who married local girls. This year, three kimono-clad husbands were carried to the top of a hill and thrown into six feet of snow. They then rolled down the slope to their waiting wives.
